How to Watch the January 26 Republican Debate Online
CNN will have a Republican Debate livestream.
Participating in the debate will be:
- Mitt Romney
- Ron Paul
- Rick Santorum
- Newt Gingrich
The Florida primary takes place on January 31, and is crucial for Mitt Romney: his lead has all but evaporated, and he can no longer walk away with the GOP nomination as he had hoped. Romney's bizarre "Self-deportation" comment during the last debate will surely come back to haunt him among Latino voters.
A recent poll suggests that Latino voters overwhelmingly favor Obama in the upcoming election. Florida's is a closed primary: only registered Republicans can vote in the state's Republican Primary.
Expect the candidates to talk about Cuba, even if moderator Wolf Blitzer doesn't bring it up. Meanwhile, Fidel Castro has already weighed in on the GOP hopefuls, calling it "the greatest competition of idiocy and ignorance that has ever been".
Also, expect the candidates to weigh in on President Obama's State of the Union address.
