Donald Trump and Jeb Bush went back-and-forth, attacking each other seven times. During the debate, Bush called Trump a "chaos candidate. And he'd be a chaos president." Trump hit back, saying Bush "has failed in this campaign. It's been a total disaster."
Paul brought up "Bridgegate" -- a scandal in which aides in Chris Christie's office ordered the shutdown of access lanes to the George Washington Bridge in 201 -- as a way to discredit the New Jersey governor.
