Gabriella Schwarz / February 25, 2016
Thursday’s Republican presidential debate is the final face-off before Super Tuesday, the biggest day of the 2016 election cycle thus far. The CNN-hosted event in Texas comes after frontrunner Donald Trump‘s decisive victory in Nevada Tuesday and Jeb Bush‘s departure from the race over the weekend.
Trump is likely to receive much of the attention Thursday as the Republican leader nationally.
