Guests: Alan Novak, Ben Domenech, and Joe Watkins

Last night’s GOP debate marked the sixth time the Republican presidential candidates squared off against each other in the hopes of differentiating themselves and breaking away from the pack as the caucuses loom ever closer. Hosted by Fox Business in North Charleston, South Carolina, the seven leading White House hopefuls discussed their views on economic, domestic, and international policy issues. While they were asked about a range of policy issue, the two leading candidates Donald Trump and Ted Cruz got into some heated and personal arguments. Joining us to analyze to the debate and take the temperature of the GOP are ALAN NOVAK, Pennsylvania-based attorney and former chairman of the Pennsylvania Republican Party, BEN DOMENECH, publisher of The Federalist and author of The Transom, a daily subscription email for political insiders, and JOE WATKINS, political commentator and a pastor of the Christ Evangelical Lutheran Church.
