GOP debate #5 is a wrap.

Governor Christie was back on the main stage and needed to make the most of this moment. With less than two months to go before the Iowa caucuses and the New Hampshire primary, it’s getting to be do-or-die time for all candidates not named Trump.

Ted Cruz is surging in the polls and Governor Christie may have jumped to second place in New Hampshire, but the brightest glare of the spotlight still shines on orange hair.

So how did Christie do?

New Jersey Public Radio’s Matt Katz and WNYC’s Andrea Bernstein were hard at work fact-checking and live-tweeting during the fifth debate. Today, they join us to AUDIO-tweet Christie’s performance … in real time.
