Frontrunner Forgoes Debate

Donald Trump will skip the debate in Iowa

Donald Trump will be skipping tonight’s GOP debate and will instead host his own fundraising event for veterans. Trump is still dwelling on his mistreatment by FOX News host (and one of the debate’s moderators) Megyn Kelly. Republican rival Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), who is second behind Trump in the polls, has invited the front-runner to a one-on-one debate Saturday night. Trump’s quarrel with Kelly began after the first FOX debate, when she asked him about a comment he made towards a female contestant on his Celebrity Apprentice tv show.

Tonight’s debate will air on FOX News Channel at 9 p.m. EST.
