5 Topics for Republican Debate No. 4
Gabriella Schwarz / November 10, 2015
Since the Republican presidential candidates last gathered on stage, much of the 2016 election oxygen has centered around the format and moderators of the debates. Frustration over the last CNBC debate, in particular, caused vocal criticism from the Republican National Committee and pushed many of the candidates to propose a list of debate stipulations. It’s under these conditions that the Fox Business and Wall Street Journal moderators take to the stage Tuesday night.
Neil Cavuto, one of Tuesday’s three anchors, said his goal is to “make myself invisible.”
“That I’m not the issue…That we’re not the issue. The answers to what we’re raising become the issue,” Cavuto told Politico.
Those issues will likely include questions on the economy and job creation given the financial focus of FBN and WSJ. But candidate dynamics are also expected to come up, especially the controversy surrounding Ben Carson’s portrayal of his personal history.
