Donald Trump’s future hinges on Republican debate tonight on CBS: schedule, channel, GOP debate 2016 lineup
Chris Christie will not be seen on CBS News GOP debate on February 13. While the man whom he demolished in the last debate continues in the race despite his robotic performance on the stage, he has been forced to exit the race.
The way he demolished Marco Rubio who had amazed everyone with his impressive performance in Iowa caucus had given hope that he may be able to do well in New Hampshire primary. But all such hopes were quashed as he didnâ€™t do any better than Iowa.
He and Carly Fiorina, the former HP CEO have bid adieu to their presidential bids. Chris Christie said despite his decision to quit he believes he was the best suited to take on Hillary Clinton in the presidential elections 2016.
While talking to his campaign managers, supporters and donors the day after dropping out of the presidential race, Chris Christie said he saw “no pathway to victory”. “I wasn’t going to be on the stage for the debate, and if I wasn’t going to be on the debate, we just didn’t see a pathway to victoryâ€¦As much as we wanted to stay in the race, and continue to articulate our message, we just didn’t feel comfortable getting on the phone and asking any of the rest of you to donate money yourselves and get your friends and colleagues to donate as wellâ€, Christie said.
His exit means people will not be able to see another below the belt attack on Marco Rubio from Christie. Saturdayâ€™s debate will take place at the Peace Center in Greenville, South Carolina. The South Carolina GOP primary takes place a week later, on February 20.
In the meantime Donald Trump is going to be there during the debate. He skipped a debate on Fox and faced its consequences in Iowa caucuses that he lost. Despite his impressive win in New Hampshire primary, there are question marks over his presidential bid. Nonetheless Trump state Chairman Jim Merrill, a Charleston legislator, laughs off suggestions Trump has no ground game. Merrill notes the staple of Trump’s campaign â€” rallies that draw thousands â€” require email registration, giving the campaign a database of more than 100,000 South Carolina voters.
