All six remaining major GOP presidential candidates have qualified for CBS News’ Republican debate in South Carolina tonight. Donald Trump, Ted Cruz, Ben Carson, Marco Rubio, Jeb Bush  and John Kasich will participate in the debate in Greenville, South Carolina.

Chris Christie and Carly Fiorina dropped out of the race earlier this week, Jim Gilmore, previously relegated to the second tier stage, did not qualify for this debate, receiving only 12 votes from Iowa caucus voters.  He suspended his campaign Friday.

  1. Conservative Since Birth says:

    Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia died today, age 79.
    I fear for our Republic.

  2. MacBeth says:

    The death of Justice Scalia with Obama naming his replacement, will signal the death of sanity in the halls of Justice. God save us all.

    Regarding the sudden death of US Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia:

    Here is more thanyou will probably see in the US media:

    The Left is in full hate mode.

    Justice Scalia was a triple threat to Obama-
    He was not OK with abortion; he was not OK with same-sex marriage, and he was not OK with affirmative action.

    Recall that just last year, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg did something highly unusual—-she gave interviews to the press in which she stated that, although she was being pressured to resign from the Court, she was not going to. It seemed as if she was saying, ‘hey if anything happens to me, I’m under a lot of pressure from the WH. to retire . . .’. Smart move on her part.

    Meanwhile, Obama is golfing.
    And probably on the phone with his good buddy Eric Holder.

    (Anybody seen/heard from Janet Napolitano lately?)

      And This:
      The State Department released more than 1,000 new pages of Hillary Clinton’s emails on Saturday.

      Timing.
