In the first Republican Presidential Primary Debate of 2015, Donald Trump clobbered his competitors for the most part, but this time, the other candidates are said to bring the fire. For example, when it came to Trump’s controversial comments about Mexico, candidate Jeb Bush stood quiet though his wife is from Mexico. He told a Veterans group this past week that this time he plans to fight back. Candidate Rand Paul also says he’s bringing the kitchen sink to this debate. Paul has called Trump a “fake conservative” and said to CNN, “Do we really want someone in charge of our nuclear arsenal who goes around basically using the insults of a junior high, or a sophomore in high school? That’s not the kind of person we want to be practicing the diplomacy of the United States.” Now that we’ve got you all riled up for the debate, read on below to find out the debate time, who the moderators are and more.
