Tonight's Debate May Be Pivotal For GOP Candidates
While Donald Trump has been one of the stars of this summer’s media coverage of the 2016 presidential race, other Republican candidates are still vying for the nomination. Carly Fiorina is entering the spotlight, and Jeb Bush is combating bad poll numbers with millions of dollars’ worth of TV advertisements.
All eyes will be on the second GOP debate, which airs tonight on CNN and Fox News at 8 p.m. Eastern, as candidates fight for recognition by the media and the American public. Sarah McCammon, Washington correspondent for NPR, speaks with Here & Now‘s Peter O’Dowd about how the candidates each need to perform in order to garner that acclaim.
