The Republican presidential debate got off to a fiery start Saturday night when Gov. Chris Christie went after Sen. Marco Rubio, painting him as a Washington politician who memorizes speeches and can't give straight answers. The exchange started when Christie was asked to comment about Rubio's preparedness to run for president, previously calling the first term senator "the boy in the bubble." http://abcn.ws/1PeNaY3
Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump's comments about the audience at theRepublican debate prompted a surprising response: a chorus of boos. "That's all of his donors and special interests out there," Trump said when the crowd responded to a jab from Jeb Bush on eminent domain. http://abcn.ws/20B15Ae
Republican presidential candidate Marco Rubio met one of his biggest criticisms during the GOP debate again...and again...and again. "And let's dispel once and for all with this fiction that Barack Obama doesn't know what he's doing. He knows exactly what he's doing," Rubio said. http://abcn.ws/1Q304ff
Ben Carson is here to stay, despite the ups and downs of his campaign. "For many months, the political class, pundits, the media have tried to ignore or bury me," Carson said in his closing statements during Saturday night's Republican debate hosted by ABC News. "They say that politics is too complex and too sleazy. You can't survive. "Well, guess what? I'm still here. And I'm not going any place, either." http://abcn.ws/1nQmjIm
