Just a few days after Super Tuesday 2, the Republican presidential candidates are taking to the stage again for the CNN Republican Debate that is co-hosted by the Salem Media Group, the Washington Times and the Republican National Committee.
The debate gives candidates a chance to appeal to more voters again, just before Super Tuesday 3 happens. On March 15, states such as Florida, Illinois, Missouri, North Carolina and Ohio will be taking to the polls for their primaries. Between all of them, there are 358 delegates to secure. But before that, the GOP candidates will also fight out for votes in Washington, D.C. and Wyoming where 19 delegates and 26 delegates are up for grabs respectively.
During the recent Super Tuesday 2, Donald Trump emerged the top winner, having won votes and the most delegates in Hawaii, Michigan and Mississippi. Meanwhile, Texas Senator Ted Cruz managed a victory over Trump in Idaho while fellow candidates Florida Senator Marco Rubio and Ohio Governor John Kasich failed to score significant votes or delegates. The upcoming debate may decide if Rubio, Kasich and Cruz will manage to get more votes and delegates during Super Tuesday 3. Meanwhile, CNN reports that former GOP presidential nominee Ben Carson is looking to endorse Trump.
