Well, it's finally here, the first (in what's likely to be a lot more) political debate of the 2016 presidential election is going down tonight in Cleveland. It'll be between those who've declared their candidacy for the Republic nomination and air exclusively on conservative cable news bastion Fox News.
Actually, because so many presidential hopefuls are angling to for the GOP ticket (in total there are 17 candidates), there will be TWO debates. The main debate will be between the top ten candidates, who are Donald Trump, Jeb Bush, Scott Walker, Mike Huckabee, Ben Carson, Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio, Rand Paul, Chris Christie and John Kasich, and will be moderated/grilled by Fox News’ Bret Baier, Megyn Kelly and Chris Wallace. The other candidates, Rick Perry, Rick Santorum, Bobby Jindal, Carly Fiorina, Lindsey Graham, George Pataki, and Jim Gilmore, will be featured in an earlier debate at 5 p.m.
The big question question of the night will be if New York mogul and reality show star Donald Trump can continue his domination of the Republican nomination race, which he's been leading since his controversial speech when he announced his candidacy. So Trump supporters and haters will be tuning to see just how the Donald does.
