THE PRAIRIE EDITOR: Pre-Debate Subscriber Advisory

The second debate of the Republican presidential candidates will take
place at the Reagan Library in California, and TV viewer interest is
expected to be very high, perhaps it will turn to be even greater than
historically high ratings for the first debate in Cleveland, Ohio.

Much of the focus in the first debate was on mogul Donald Trump
who was then, and is now, leading in the polls. For the second debate,
physician Ben Carson has special interest as he has almost tied Mr.
Trump in the polls. A third focus will be on businesswoman Carly
Fiorina who did not appear in the first prime time debate, but whose
poll numbers now qualify her. It is interesting that none of these
three candidates have ever held elective office before.

Of the career politicians, Jeb Bush, Scott Walker, Marco Rubio, Ted
Cruz and Chris Christie probably need to do well in the second
debate, and will look for "break-out" moments in the course of the
event. Altogether, there will be eleven candidates on the Reagan
Library stage.

[THE PRAIRIE EDITOR will post an 
after-debate analysis following the debate on 
this site. Subscribers will receive an alert.]
