Who Stood Out At the Second GOP Presidential Debate?

The seven candidates who qualified for the second Republican presidential debate took the stage last night at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in Simi Valley, California. After the first debate proved to have an evident impact on voters, with many polls showing South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley’s numbers rising while Florida Governor Ron DeSantis took a hit, many Americans anticipated how last night’s debate would continue shaping the Republican presidential field. Did the debate have a clear “winner,” and how could the eventful night impact former President Donald Trump’s lead in the polls? On the Rundown, FOX News Radio Political Analyst Josh Kraushaar and FOX News Radio Congressional Correspondent Jared Halpern discuss which candidates had a successful night, why they believe the majority of those on stage missed the mark when discussing the economy, and who they believe did well enough to make it to the next debate.

Tonight, Americans can tune into the second GOP presidential debate hosted by FOX Business and Univision. The moderators--Dana Perino, Stuart Varney, and Ilia Calderón--will guide the discussion for the seven candidates on the stage, addressing the issues that voters are most concerned about. The job of the moderator can be a difficult one, tasked with creating debate while maintaining civility. On the Rundown, FOX Business' Stuart Varney says this debate will have all the candidates "pressing hard to make a breakthrough." On the podcast, he explains how this debate will give candidates a chance to discuss big-picture issues for the economy and his plans to encourage more substantive debate between the contenders on stage.   The latest FOX News poll shows that former President Donald Trump remains the party's frontrunner, with nearly a fifty-point lead ahead of Florida Governor Ron DeSantis. However, Trump will remain absent from the debate stage this week, maintaining his promise to not participate in any GOP primary debates. After candidates like Nikki Haley and Vivek Ramaswamy made headway in the first debate, now candidates are seeking break-out moments the second time around. Karl Rove, former senior advisor, Deputy White House Chief of Staff, and FOX News Contributor, joins the Rundown to reflect on what the candidates did well the first time around and explain why early national polls are not an indicator of the eventual nominee.   Plus, commentary by Republican strategist and co-founder of South & Hill Strategies, Colin Reed.

RNC Chair: To Win, GOP Must Sell 'Alternative to Bidenomics'

FOX Business will host the second Republican presidential debate in Simi Valley, California, at 9:00 P.M. ET on Wednesday. With the business network hosting this event, there is likely to be more substantial discussions about the state of the U.S. economy, which recent polling shows a strong majority of Americans are both pessimistic and worried about. Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel joins the podcast to explain her hopes that the FOX Business debate will give the 2024 candidates an opportunity to pitch their fix to America’s struggling economy. She explains why she believes Republicans are well-trusted on economic policy, what she predicts a Trump-Biden rematch might look like, and how the GOP can litigate the issue of abortion on the campaign trail.   There were eleven thousand migrant encounters at the southern border from Sunday to Monday—the most in a twenty-four-hour period.
