    Everything you need to know about the 9th Republican presidential debate
    By Noah Weiland - February 11, 2016

    [​IMG]

    When is the 9th Republican presidential debate?
    The 9th Republican presidential debate is Saturday in Greenville, South Carolina, a state that promises an unpleasant race to the finish line. There was a GOP debate in Charleston just last month. CBS News hosts this meeting; it ran a Democratic debate in Iowa in November.

    The event is at the Peace Center, an ornate performing arts venue that hosted a 2011 GOP presidential debate. It used to be the site of a bustling wagon and carriage factory before turning into the first production factory for Duke’s Mayonnaise in 1925.​
    What time is the debate?
    The debate begins at 9 PM EST and will last 90 minutes. Over that stretch, the latest horse-race beefs and disputes will on display, as will a host of political issues relevant to South Carolina’s brand of Republicanism: military spending (there are 58,000 military retirees in the state), Evangelical Christianity and national security. (To demonstrate the latter’s urgency, Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio were in Washington Wednesday to vote on legislation that increases sanctions on North Korea.)​
    How can I watch the debate?
    The debate will be broadcast on CBS and streamed online at CBSNews.com.​
    Who will moderate the debate?
    John Dickerson, anchor of CBS News’ “Face the Nation” and political columnist columnist for Slate, will be the primary moderator. CBS News White House correspondent Major Garrett and the Wall Street Journal’s Kimberley Strassel will contribute questions. Dickerson moderated the CBS News Iowa debate and has been interviewing the Republican candidates regularly on his weekly show. Strassel wrote a column in the WSJ in November critical of Cruz’s foreign policy qualifications.​
    Who will participate?
    CBS has yet to release the field, but the six remaining candidates are all expected to make it in: Cruz, Rubio, Donald Trump, Ben Carson, Jeb Bush, and John Kasich.​
    How did candidates qualify?
    Candidates had to place in the top five in New Hampshire, in the top three in Iowa, or in the top five in an average of South Carolina and national polling. With the field winnowed, the criteria are less discriminating; Carson is the only remaining major candidate who could conceivably fail to qualify.​
    What’s changed since the last debate?
    Rubio now has to fend off Trump and Bush after failing to consolidate any “establishment” consensus in New Hampshire. An unusually contrite Rubio sees the state as a chance to retrieve the energy he had coming out of a strong showing in the Iowa caucuses. He has long seen South Carolina as a place to help him solidify the nomination. Bush, whose long-awaited comeback could materialize with a strong showing in the primary, has received a boost from his brother George, who recorded a radio ad to be played in the state and is making his first appearance on the trail Monday. But perhaps most significantly, Donald Trump won a primary.​
    Could South Carolina be decisive in the race?
    It won’t win the primary for anyone, but for several candidates, a poor finish in South Carolina could mean the end. Bush and Carson need to prove themselves after lagging in the first two contests.

    And for Republicans who self-identify as “establishment,” the primary could only worsen anxieties over Trump and Cruz. It could also further expose a protracted race ahead. A few lower-polling candidates could end up dropping out after the primary if funding is low, but the voting is unlikely to offer much separation between the frontrunners. It could take until the Super Tuesday primaries before we have a sense of who’s truly in good shape heading down the home stretch.​
    Wait, what was that earlier about Duke's mayonnaise?
    Duke’s is an American favorite that first caught on in town during World War I. Eugenia Duke’s yolk-centric mayo recipe was born in Greenville just a few years after the condiment first became commercially available in the United States, and it has since ingratiated itself with burger snobs who feel it’s superior to the more popular Hellmans.​

    CBS News releases the 9th 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.

    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.

    There is no need to have Carson on the stage. At all.

    The wierd thing about this debate, is that most of these candidates have to attack eachother, with the exception of Trump who has to counterpunch, if he is attacked.

    The candidates that aren't in double-digits can't sit back, answer questions politely, not attack anyone, and expect their poll numbers to skyrocket.

    But attacking another candidate is very very risky, as Christie proved last Saturday, successful attacks on other candidates may not help you much, but the supposed loss of supporters may go to others with possibly higher poll numbers. Many speculate that Rubio's lost voters in NH simpily jumped ship to Cruz, who ended up finishing third, which was unexpected.

    Or worse, the attack could backfire on the spot, like a memorable exchange between Kasich and Cruz a few months ago, in which Kasich took a counterpunch on the chin after attacking Cruz on the Iran deal.

    Also, with Christie and Fiorina dropping out, their supporters are the wild cards for who they'll jump ship to.

    Expect this debate to be the most exciting, with the most up for grabs, the expectation of at least one dropout after the primary....

    *Cough*Carson*Cough*

    ...and two candidates to fall into obscurity, with only their egos keeping them from dropping out.

    *Cough*Bush*Cough*PossiblyRubio*Cough

    And Kasich is hanging around reguardless of his low numbers in SC. He's under the delusion he'll kick his campaign into gear after Super Tuesday, and miraculous sweep most of the remaining primaries, and become the nominee.

    No Chance In Hell. That's what he gotz.

    Meanwhile on Earth Two, Bizarro Carson suddenly descends from the sky and destroy Donald Duck's lead in a blaze of neurosurgical fury :D

    Just kidding, the good Doctor will be taking a nap on stage again...

    I think CBS's moderator did really well in the Democratic debate. Hopefully, it is just as good tonight with the field the smallest it's been.

    Watch Scalia's death affect the debate and possible race. Trump has said he'd like putting his sister on the supreme court and she is a liberal judge. I wouldn't be surprised if one or two take a swing at that tonight.

    That attack may stick, but he'll laugh it off saying he was joking.

    Chances are, he'll see that line of attack coming.
