Transcript for Highlights From the Republican Debate
Okay, let's break this down with our political team, I'm joined by Jon Karl, Matthew dowd and Cecilia Vega. Let's talk about the debate first. Matthew, big winner. Ifco winners on this. I think Carly fiorina was a winner just as she was at the minor league debate but Marco Rubio did himself some good. And both will be on the main event next time. Some agreement. Absolutely. Carly fiorina owned this debate from the beginning until the end in her attacks on and this really was a make or break for several campaigns. They're not going to get this type of high-profile free exposure for another six weeks until the next republican debate in Colorado. You, Tom. Joining us now one of the other candidate, a lot of commentators saw as a big winner last night, Carly fiorina joins us from simi Valley. Thank you for joining us. Did it feel like a win? Yes, I was very satisfied. You know, when I went into that debate, almost half the audience had never heard my name and didn running for president. So this was a realltant opportunity for me to introduce myself and I think I did that successfully last nigh You made Donald Trump blush with your response to his comments about your persona. Now calling a niceerson and beautiful. You didn't have a Verba response on stage. What too late. And I think that's a big problem for him in the aftermath. I've got a different loser. This was not trump's best performance but he didn't have any major gaffes. When you're the front-runner you just need to not make a mistake. The loser was Scott walker. He has fallen the fastest. He needed to break through and didn't. A lot watching Jeb bush think over the two hours had some great moments but also some missed opportunities. Hard to say how he worked out. I'd call him the most improved candidate on the stage. Which is never -- sounds like third grade when you fail something. Let's talk about Hillary, Cecilia. She did a little counterprogramming. She said she wasn't watching before the event at jimmy Fallon practicing new spontaneous funny Hillary Clinton. We have some tape look. I'm curious, Donald Trump. What is your stance on women's issues? Look, I know a lot of women, and they all have issues. There was even a joke about the E mails but, look, the Clinton camp is calling this a victory for Hillary Clinton saying it shows how far right the republican field is. The official response was a pretty good one. They sent out a meme of Hillary Clinton shrugging her shoulders and rolling her eyes. That's the reaction right now. You know, they're saying, hey, look, they'll let the republicans fight it out and watch it and have a good time. But taking you up on that point I was surprised she didn't actually take more hits last night. She didn't come up very much. No, I mean, she didn't and they were going after trump. You have 11 republicans on the stage each trying to get their moment. They spent more time attacking him. By far trump was under attack. Watch the under card debate before this. The congressional republicans took more attacks than Hillary Clinton did. They're having a lot of trouble with the establishment in the field. Thank you all very much.
