Tonight’s GOP Debates
The Washington Examiner (“GOP field seeks to get out of Trump’s shadow in debate”) reports:
“A diminished but still confident crowd of Republican contenders takes the stage for the second televised debate here tonight looking to re-energize their campaigns and reset the terms of the 2016 contest.
“Perhaps the most distinguished GOP field of White House hopefuls in a generation was overshadowed and overtaken this summer by political outsiders who have never held (and in some cases, run) for office. New York businessman/entertainer Donald Trump continues to lead in nearly every state and national poll, with retired pediatric neurosurgeon Ben Carson nipping at his heels. Former technology executive Carly Fiorina also vaulted into contention since the first televised debate in August.
“That ups the stakes for the eight other Republicans who were invited to participate in CNN’s prime time debate at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in this suburb just north of Los Angeles. For some, it’s a matter of using their camera time to increase their name recognition among a GOP electorate that is still largely doesn’t know who they are. For others with higher initial expectations, the event could be a crucial turning point.
