In what is becoming an exercise in both spectacle and monotony the umpteenth GOP debate will take place this evening. Whittled down to a list of four candidates — Donald Trump, Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio and John Kasich — remain from the original roster of 17 contenders.
In fact, there should only be two men featured tonight. Both Rubio and Kasich are playing the contemptible game of trying to throw the convention into contested status, in an attempt to disable Trump and perhaps allow the increasingly unsavory Mitt Romney a path to head the ticket and lose once again. It’s clearly Trump’s and Cruz’ night to make their cases.
Watch it if you must. The not-actually-a-debate begins at 6:30 PM AZ Time (8:30 ET) and will be broadcast from the University of Miami in Florida. Moderators are Jake Tapper, Dana Bash, Hugh Hewitt and Stephen Dinan.
Broadcast live on CNN the event will be streamed online at CNN.com. Salem Radio Network is the exclusive radio provider. The debate is hosted by CNN, Salem Media Group, The Washington Times and the Republican National Committee.
