On Wed., Sept. 16, the second Republican debate took way. The moderator Jake Tapper laid out the debate rules: The candidates would be questioned and would have a chance to respond if they were criticized in an answer.
The debate started off heavy with questions and comments directed to Donald Trump, with the
debate continuing on Trump was quiet when the questions on foreign policy arose. On the other hand
Marco Rubio came in strong in opinion of what the nation’s leaders should do with foreign policy.
Carly Foirina shined during this debate which was good seeing that she was not invited to the first
Republican debate. Foirina stood her ground and at one point fired a comment back at Trump about what
the American women heard from him earlier in his campaign.
On the other hand, Ben Carson failed to successfully bring his game to this debate. Carson was
quiet and often times more conservative in his answers then he was in the previous debate. Carson will
most likely go down in the polls after this debate.
The next Republican debate will be held on Oct. 28, on CNBN at the University of Colorado.
