COLUMBUS, Ga. – Voters in Muscogee County paid close attention to last night’s first Republican debate of 2016. The seven leading Republican candidates took the stage for the sixth Republican debate.
News 3 spoke to Jimmi McCarty who works with the Muscogee County Republican Party. She thinks this is the best debate Jeb Bush and John Kasich have had, but she said she didn’t think any one candidate could be declared the winner.
“Among all the candidates they covered mostly what’s on American’s minds today. Our financial security, our security in the world, our safety in America,” McCarty said.
She said she thinks the candidates did a good job discussing the job situation in America and how to make much-needed improvements for the country.
Democrats will square-ff in their next debate this Sunday. The next Republican debate will be Thursday, January 28th. The Iowa caucuses will be held February first.
