It’s 2016! With the presidential election this year, the Republican candidates are wasting no time in arguing the important issues. Donald Trump, Ted Cruz and more will meet on Jan. 14 in South Carolina, and HollywoodLife.com wants you to see every moment. Click to watch!
It’s been a month since these Republican warriors faced off on the political battlefield, but after the short break, the GOP presidential candidates are refreshed and ready to go. Donald Trump, 69, will take on Ted Cruz, 44, Marco Rubio, 44, and four other of the Republican’s best in the very first debate of the year!
Along with Donald, Ted and Marco, Jeb Bush, 62, Chris Christie, 53, Ben Carson, 64, and John Kasich, 63, will be on stage during the Fox Business debate on Jan. 14. The Republican candidates will gather at the North Charleston Coliseum and Performing Arts Center in North Charleston, South Carolina, but don’t expect them to sing. Instead, they’ll argue everything from national security to economic policy. The action kicks off at 9:00 P.M. EST so be sure you’re ready to see what these men have to say.
Moderators Neil Cavuto, 57, and Maria Bartiromo, 48, will oversee the action that will not include Rand Paul, 53, or Carly Fiorina, 61. Sadly, both the Senator and business executive didn’t quality for the main debate. Instead, they were invited to the earlier debate with Mike Huckabee, 60, and Rick Santorum, 57. Rand declined, saying that he’ll “be taking [his] campaign directly to New Hampshire and Iowa, according to the Huffington Post. “I think it’s a mistake to try to exclude me from the national debate.”
The first actually primary is the Iowa caucus, taking place on Feb. 1, according to PBS. With less than a month to go, the candidates are looking to amp up their campaigns. During the Dec. 15 debate, Jeb slammed Donald, saying he would be “chaos president.” Donald fired back by mocking Jeb’s “tough guy” act before dismissing his rival. And that wasn’t the most outrageous thing he said.
Donald said he would “close down” part of the Internet to fight ISIS, before saying Muslims are the reason why the “country is out of control.” Ted also jumped on the Anti-Muslim bandwagon, saying he would ban “all refugees” from ISIS controlled countries, after saying a “moderate [Syrian] rebel” was as rare as a “purple unicorn.”
New Jersey governor Chris Christie tried to get some attention, but he was only blasted for his sexist remarks. And a heckler was shoved and pushed out of the auditorium following an angry outburst. Yikes! What’s going to happen this time?
