Last Updated Feb 14, 2016 12:23 AM EST

Update: CBS News' 24/7 streaming channel, CBSN, will re-broadcast the debate online at 12 AM EST, 2 AM, 4 AM, and 7 AM. Watch it here.

On Saturday night, the remaining Republican presidential candidates will gather in Greenville, South Carolina for their first debate since this week's New Hampshire primaries.

This will be the last Republican debate before South Carolina's Republican primary on Feb. 20, and it will take place at the Peace Center in Greenville, from 9 p.m. to 11 p.m. ET.

These candidates have been invited to the debate: businessman Donald Trump, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, former neurosurgeon Ben Carson, and Ohio Gov. John Kasich.

The candidates will face off just days after New Hampshire's nominating contest, where Trump swept the competition with 35 percent of the votes. Kasich came in second with 16 percent, Cruz finished with 12 percent. Bush and Rubio were the only other candidates to garner double-digit support, with 11 percent each.

Since the New Hampshire primaries, former tech executive Carly Fiorina, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, and former Virginia Gov. Jim Gilmore have withdrawn from the race.

Candidates will be questioned on a variety of domestic and foreign policy issues. One topic that could be discussed is the recent news of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia's death.

Earlier in the day, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Kentucky, said he believes the Senate should wait 11 months for the next president to be sworn in before confirming a Supreme Court justice to replace Scalia.

"Face the Nation" host and CBS News political director John Dickerson will serve as the main moderator for the debate. He will be joined by two panelists: CBS News chief White House correspondent Major Garrett and The Wall Street Journal's Kimberly Strassel.

CBS News will offer multi-platform coverage of the debate, with extensive coverage before, during, and after the debate via CBSN, the network's 24/7 digital streaming news service.

CBSN will also offer a special 9:00 PM broadcast of the debate that will include enhanced graphics to showcase real-time Google Trends data and a curated Twitter stream.
