The debates are going to show us the GOP candidates’ true colors.
CLEVELAND, Ohio — A year from now, Republicans will have nominated their candidate at the 2016 Republican National Committee (RNC) convention here. But tonight, the opening salvo of what’s likely to be a bruising and brutal presidential primary process for all involved begins, and the wounds afflicting the party—a Civil War between moderates and conservatives—will be on display for the world to see in the first of many coming 2016 GOP presidential primary debates.
Center stage at 9 p.m. Eastern time will be GOP frontrunner billionaire businessman Donald Trump, flanked on either side by the rest of the top 10 of the GOP field: Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, Ohio Gov. John Kasich, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, Sens. Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY), Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), and Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL), and world-renowned neurosurgeon Dr. Ben Carson.
