Who won Republican Presidential Debate tonight: Live
Update: The debate began on an interesting note: The Republican National Committee chair Reince Priebus is telling theÂ boys he wants them to play nice tonight, calling for â€œmore of a G-ratedâ€ debate in Miami.
The man who has insulted almost everyone big time Donald Trump, assured debate broadcaster CNN he intends to be â€œsofterâ€ onstage tonight than at recent debates. But with Mitt Romneyâ€™s Never Trump movement â€œmortally wounded,â€ he intends to â€œknock outâ€ Ohio Gov. John Kasich and Florida Sen. Marco Rubio on his way to winning their statesâ€™ winner-takes-all primaries next weeek, giving him a lock on the GOP nom. â€œIf you knock â€™em out, nothing can happen,â€ Trump explained, reasonably. Texas Sen. Ted Cruz will be there tonight too, with Jake Tapper moderating the moderators.
If you have not been able to make your mind to back one of the four Republican presidential hopefuls, tonight will give you yet another opportunity to assess and make your mind. The twelfth Republican debate is going to be organized by CNN.
The television channel seems to be having a field day as it hosted another debate â€“Democratic debate â€“last night. After hosting Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton, the channel is hosting a debate that is going to be watched by much bigger audience across the US than the last nightâ€™s debate.
It must be kept in mind that Republican debates are far more popular with audience compared to Democratic debates during the whole primary season. This may be due to the presence of large number of presidential hopefuls and also due to the billionaire businessman Donald Trump.
If you are not happy with the late night schedule of the GOP debate here is a good news. Thursday night’s debate will begin a half hour earlier than most other weeknight debates have started this election season. The bad news is that you’ll probably want to put the kids to bed early as well, in case the candidates discuss the size of their … hands … again. Donald Trump, Marco Rubio, Ted Cruz and John Kasich will take the stage in Miami five days before the Florida primary. With Rubio and Kasich each facing must-win contests in their home states next Tuesday, it’s quite possible this will be the last time you see all four candidates on a debate stage.
In the meantime tonightâ€™s Republican debate will stream live from the University of Miami â€” a debate that Republican party leaders hope will unfold in a more dignified fashion than last weekâ€™s debate, which made headlines for the non-stop insults traded by the candidates, especially frontrunner Donald Trump and Florida Senator Marco Rubio, and was especially noteworthy for a section in which Trump discussed the size of his penis.
Many people wonder if the debate will go beyond â€˜handsâ€™. â€œLook at those hands, are they small hands?â€ said Donald Trump â€” who appears increasingly likely to become the Republican partyâ€™s nominee for president. â€œAnd, he referred to my hands â€” â€˜if theyâ€™re small, something else must be small.â€™ I guarantee you thereâ€™s no problem. I guarantee.â€
