Republican Presidential Debate Live Stream: Watch GOP Candidates In Las Vegas Online
The Republican Presidential debate is being held Tuesday from The Venetian in Las Vegas, and Gossip Cop has a live stream. The CNN-hosted debate is the first time the GOP candidates have gotten together since the Paris and San Bernardino attacks, and it will focus on terrorism and national security. Watch live stream below.
This marks the fifth debate for the Republicans vying for the White House, and once again all eyes will be focused GOP frontrunner Donald Trump, who recently called for a temporary ban on Muslims trying to enter the United States. The real estate mogul turned presidential hopeful will spar with Ted Cruz, Ben Carson, Jeb Bush, Marco Rubio, Chris Christie, Carly Fiorina, John Kasich, and Rand Paul. The debate on terrorism comes amidst the backdrop of the news earlier Tuesday that Los Angeles public schools were shut down as a result of bomb threats.
CNN anchor Wolf Blitzer is the debate’s moderator. He’s joined by the cable network’s Dana Bash and conservative radio talk-show host Hugh Hewitt. The trio earlier also questioned the four lowest polling candidates, Mike Huckabee, Lindsey Graham, George Pataki, and Rick Santorum, during their own undercard debate.
While Trump remains at the top of the heap nationally, potential voters and pundits will be also scrutinizing Cruz, who is running close (or possibly ahead of the real estate developer, in some polls) in Iowa, which has its caucus in seven weeks. The fifth GOP presidential debate begins at 9 p.m. Note: The live stream is no longer available.
