GOP debate tonight, March 3, 2016, 7 PM AZ time

Tonight’s GOP presidential forum will take place at the Fox Theater in Detroit during a pivotal point in the election cycle — just two days after Super Tuesday — and ahead of key primary elections in Michigan on March 8 and both Florida and Ohio on March 15.

Watch the debate on Fox News Channel or Stream live HERE at 7:00 PM (AZ Time) 9:00 PM ET

With Dr. Ben Carson‘s announcement that he doesn’t “see a political path forward” in the Republican presidential nomination process, he will not participate in the presidential debate in his hometown of Detroit. Carson is still scheduled to appear Friday at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in Washington D.C.

The four remaining candidates seeking the Republican presidential nomination are Donald Trump, Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio and John Kasich.

Fox News moderators for this debate are Bret Baier, Megyn Kelly and Chris Wallace. Tonight’s event will be the first time Trump and Kelly face one another since the August debate that went south. Trump then skipped the January debate. Kelly now appears conciliatory with this recent statement: “Frankly, I have been ready for seven months to move beyond what happened after that August debate. I feel like it’s getting boring. Trump has bigger things to worry about, and so do I,” she said.

The cable channel’s August debate attracted a record-breaking 24 million viewers for a presidential primary debate. The January forum without Trump drew about half as many viewers — still the second-largest audience in the network’s history.

    After Mitt Romney’s disgraceful anti -Trump tirade today, followed by El geezbo McCain’s, I am disinclined to subject myself to another so called debate. These fraudulent Republicans are all in for their amnesty clone Rubio.
    Rage over our wide open border (which McCain and Romney have facilitated) is what Trump has tapped into. There have been enough debates. I’m not a fan o the free for all cage matches the networks promote for ratings. They certainly don’t educate. Trump and Cruz should decline any more of these carnivals.

    • Frankly Speaking says:

      That’s the best suggestion yet. If Cruz and Trump opt out, it will leave sniping little Marco and John Kasich to engage in this farce. I hope Trump and Cruz mend their fences since they are the only one’s worth considering.

      Dr. Ben Carson should be appointed Surgeon General and Chris Christie US Attorney. Conservative Ted Cruz could step down from the VP post and be appointed to the next Supreme Court vacancy. I’d be perfectly happy with that entire scenario.

      McRubio, McRomney and McCain himself are all amnesty pushers, regardless of what they say to deceive us. They are all losers. Rubio doesn’t even show up to work. The US Senate obviously bores him.

    I completely agree with the previous comments about the debates. They are a joke, and I am tired of the networks making money off of them. I am ashamed of the Republican establishment. Romney and Mc Cain are an joke. I am ashamed os myself at all the years I let the Republican establishment fool me into voting for them. I will be voting for Trump. Never will I trust the establishment again.

    Only 50 tickets for the public – the rest insiders – establishment trickery as usual. Any bets Rubio supporters!

    • Conservative Since Birth says:

      Yep – here’s the tally: Lansing — The Michigan Republican Party received more than 21,000 ticket requests for Thursday’s presidential debate in Detroit but will only be giving out about 50 tickets to the public.

      The Republican National Committee allocated 400 tickets to the state party, which is expected to give roughly 350 to elected officials, state committee members and grassroots activists, said Michigan GOP spokeswoman Sarah Anderson.

      This leaves 50 tickets for the public. The tickets will be randomly awarded to some of the 21,000 people who filled out an online form on the state party website.

      Heaven forbid there might be too many Trump supporters. I’m so tired of their games – just as I’m tired of Megyn Kelly and her two cohorts.

    Trump Hatred Destroys Campaign Sign

    They think it’s liberal Hillary supporters. I’ll bet on Bill Kristol, John McEvil, Lindsey Grahamnesty and Mitt Romney who hates Trump and was a one-term governor there.

    I just read the Limbaugh site- a lady, Kathy, from Sun City, AZ , brilliantly explained why the Republican base is in revolt. And, for once, she was not interrupted by Rushbo, but rather complimented for her passion and concision. A worthwhile read; much better than the drivel from Romney.

    • Conservative Since Birth says:

      I actually heard that in the car this morning. Made one proud to be an Arizonan listening to her. She was well-informed and said it like it is. Rush was impressed and offered her an iPad. She refused it and said to give it to the Fisher House or other deserving organization. She should be sought out to run for office. She’s exactly what we need.
