Live Tweet Tonight: GOP Debate

Eight contenders take the stage for tonight's GOP debate. We'll cover the highlights on Twitter.


We're settling in for the Republican debate tonight, this time brought to us by the Washington Post and Bloomberg. The theme of the debate, which airs at 8 p.m. ET on Bloomberg Television and, is strictly the economy -- so we can probably rule out questions on the racially charged name of Rick Perry's family hunting camp, or how the candidates feel about Mormonism. Still, you never know what will happen.

Join The Root's Washington reporter, Cynthia Gordy, on Twitter @TheRoot247 (hashtag: #EconDebate) live starting at 8 p.m.!
