Reaction to the latest 2016 GOP presidential debate

Listen 00:48:46

Guests: Jared Bernstein, Jennifer Rubin, and Bob Cusack

Last night, the Republican presidential candidates squared off for the fourth time on the national stage, this time in Milwaukee at the Fox Business/Wall Street Journal sponsored-debate. It featured eight candidates on the main stage, a smaller cadre than the previous events, and was geared toward the candidates’ views on business and the economy. In this hour of Radio Times, we check in with JENNIFER RUBIN, The Washington Post’s ‘Right Turn’ columnist and JARED BERNSTEIN of the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities about the debate and how the candidates stand on economic issues. We’ll also hear from BOB CUSACK, editor in chief of The Hill on the state of the GOP field and how the race for the White House is shaping up.
