Following the first GOP presidential debate on Fox News, there was plenty of discussion among pundits as to who “had the best night” and who “came out on top.” One thing everybody seems to agree on: Carly Fiorina deserves a promotion.
Fox’s debates guidelines placed the ten highest polling candidates into the primetime debate, while the rest of the candidates appeared at a smaller debate earlier in the afternoon – aptly called the “kids table.” One candidate stuck out at the early debate, and that was Carly Fiorina.
Here are some of the highlights:
Due to CNN’s rules for the second debate, Carly was initially not allowed on CNN’s primetime stage. After many protested, CNN altered the criteria for their debate with the intention of making an 11th podium for Carly Fiorina.
But Fiorina admits she still has one pretty big problem, as she told Megyn Kelly in the lead up to the debate: more than half of Republican primary voters have never heard of her.
Maybe this GOP exclusive interview with Fiorina will help. Check it out below:
