Donald Trump's podium will be centerstage again with a surging Ted Cruz standing to the billionaire's left for the 5th and last Republican presidential debate of 2015, CNN announced Sunday.

Improved poll numbers for Chris Christie and Rand Paul earned them the last two positions on stage for the 9-candidate prime time debate set for Las Vegas at 8:30 p.m. ET Tuesday, December 15. Marco Rubio, Jeb Bush, Carly Fiorina and John Kasich will also be in the main debate.

Mike Huckabee was bumped to the dark horse debate with Rick Santorum, Lindsey Graham and George Pataki, which will air at 6 p.m ET.
