January 19th CNN GOP Presidential Debate [video]

By | January 19, 2012

It’s only been a few days and it’s already time for another Republican Presidential candidate debate tonight at 8pm Eastern on CNN. If you liked the last one because there were only five candidates, you may really like this one as Rick Perry has joined the ranks of the fallen.

Newt Gingrich, Ron Paul, Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum will be the only participants in the CNN debate that will be held in Charleston, SC.

Just hours before the debate Rick Perry announced the suspension of his campaign and his endorsement of Newt Gingrich. Shortly after that, news broke that Newt’s ex-wife sat down with ABC news in an interview where she discussed their divorce more than a decade past.

Romney has been hammered over his use of off-shore banking to hold his money, his tax rate and his reluctance to share his tax returns. After his lackluster performance in the last debate, the negative attention is taking its toll as Newt has now taken a slim lead in South Carolina polls.

Ron Paul struggled to explain his unpopular foreign policy in Monday’s event and that seems to left him anchored at the bottom of the pile now that Perry has left.

That leaves Santorum to make or break his campaign in tonight’s affair. His last debate performance was neither great nor terrible, he’s been largely left alone by the press and today we learned that he actually won the Iowa Caucuses.
