The Republican presidential candidates will gather in Myrtle Beach, SC, at 9:00 tonight for the latest debate, this time between the remaining five candidates. This debate and one on Thursday night hosted by CNN will lead up to Saturday's South Carolina Republican presidential primary. The Wall Street Journal will be on the scene live-blogging as well as Stacy McCain and others from the blogging and mainstream media worlds.
Fox News will be in charge of this event, thankfully; perhaps we won't have such asinine questions as the one from CBS' George Stephanopolous a little over a week ago about contraception. Here's hoping the Fox moderators will present questions pertaining to jobs, the economy, national security, and national debt.
With Jon Huntsman's departure from the race this morning, that leaves Mitt Romney, Newt Gingrich, Rick Santorum, Ron Paul, and Rick Perry. Polls are showing Romney, who won in Iowa and New Hampshire, leading by double digits in South Carolina and Florida.
Tonight ... 9 pm ... the latest Republican debate.
