CNN announced Tuesday that a candidate will only receive an invite for the debate if he matches at least one of the four criteria:

A person must place in one of the top four slots in the final results of the Iowa Caucus.

A person must place in one of the top four slots in the final results of the New Hampshire Primary.

A person must receive an average of at least 7.00 percent in at least three national polls released between January 1 and January 18 that were conducted by major polling organizations.

A person must receive an average of at least 7.00 percent in at least three South Carolina polls released between January 1 and January 18 that were conducted by major polling organizations.

Apparently, wearing a really gay jacket doesn’t qualify.
