The Republican presidential candidates will face off again tonight. They will be debating at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in California, but this debate will be different because a new fact that the President gets ready to roll out his jobs-creation plan—one topic is likely to dominate tonight’s GOP debate.
“What voters care about right now the mostly about the jobs, the economy—and how are you going to grow both of them,”says Jennifer Horn, founder of the conservative group. But the issue could be eclipsed by the newest star on campaign trail. “Tonight is the coming out party for Rick Perry from Texas,” says political analyst Scott Spradling. Dean Spiliotes of NH politicalcapital.com agrees, “Actually seeing him in action, particularly against Mitt Romney, in the debate I think will be something people will be very interested in.”
His debut was provisional because of forest fires in its original state, but since Perry arrived in California. The governor of Texas, today as the favorite Republican is not a well known debater but, Spradling recalls, “we have seen so far from the way that Perry has a style about him and he not afraid to throw some punches. I think we’ll see some fireworks tonight.
The forum is also crucial for the former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney, who had held a solid lead in Perry, “whose assets have declined since Perry in” in the race, and the Minnesota Congresswoman Michele Bachmann said Spiliotis.
“They will try to get back in the race.”Tensions have built between the candidates of the scene. When Utah Governor Jon Huntsman, was hit on Romney, while Perry and other Texans, Ron Paul, have been sparring with each other.
