    Oh my…: 😆

    You can’t possibly say it’s been a bad week when Ted Cruz has a problem with a soft-core porn actress.

    CBS News releases Republican presidential debate lineup

    The six remaining major GOP presidential candidates have all qualified for CBS News’ Republican debate in South Carolina on Saturday night, the network announced Friday.

    Donald Trump, Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio, Jeb Bush, Ben Carson and John Kasich have been invited to participate in the debate at the Peace Center in Greenville.

    Former Virginia Gov. Jim Gilmore, who had only previously participated in undercard debates, did not qualify for the main stage, and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and Carly Fiorina dropped out of the 2016 race earlier this week.

    Face the Nation anchor and CBS News political director John Dickerson will be the debate’s main moderator and will be joined by CBS News White House correspondent Major Garrett and The Wall Street Journal’s Kimberley Strassel.

    The debate will air live on CBS from 9 p.m. to 11 p.m. ET on Saturday, and network’s digital streaming service, CBSN, will offer extensive coverage before, during and after the debate.

    Criteria to qualify for the debate were announced on Tuesday, ahead of New Hampshire’s primary. http://www.cbsnews.com/news/criteria-for-cbs-news-republican-debate/

    The CBS debate is the final one before the party’s next nominating contest: the South Carolina Republican primary on Feb. 20.

    It comes four days after Trump won New Hampshire’s GOP primary, followed by Kasich in second place, Cruz in third, Bush in fourth and Rubio in fifth place.

      I don’t understand why Gilmore is still a candidate. Can anyone tell me why his name still appears among the candidates?

        ‘Cuz he still has money..’Mornin’, Wavey!….8-)

        • waverly says:

          But since his odds at this point are insurmountable why not do like Christie and just leave already. That’s what I don’t get

          • 4E Bern says:

            He has to make the rounds and glad-hand the party officials so maybe he can get in the back door of some RW think tank or law firm as a lobbyist….8-)

    DWS time…

    “How is she saying anything other than: We want diversity and grassroots activists to appear to be a part of our party process. We just want to make sure they can only compete with each other and not against us insiders and our choice of candidate.”
