The Broad Side’s GOP Debate Prep: #GOPDebateBroads

2016 GOP Fox News Debate, 2016 GOP clown car, 2016 Republican presidential candidates
Tonight ten practically randomly selected candidates will debate on FOX News.

Ladies and gentlemen…The day has arrived to officially, really, truly kick off the 2016 campaign for the office of the President of the United States of America!

In this corner, well, all the corners are SEVENTEEN contenders for the Republican ticket. Tonight ten practically randomly selected candidates will debate on FOX News at 9 p.m. Eastern. The Junior Varsity (JV) candidates will meet earlier in the day for the consolation conversation at 5 p.m. Eastern. Here at The Broad Side, we present you with some quick #GOPDebatePrep:

Varsity Candidates:

  • Donald Trump
  • Jeb Bush
  • Scott Walker
  • Ben Carson
  • Ted Cruz
  • Mike Huckabee
  • Rand Paul
  • Marco Rubio
  • Chris Christie
  • John Kasich

JV Candidates:

  • Rick Perry
  • Rick Santorum
  • Bobby Jindal
  • Carly Fiorina
  • Lindsey Graham
  • George Pataki
  • Jim Gilmore

Over the years we have written a lot about this gang of GOPers: Yearbook quotes, Perry’s stumble over the HPV vaccine, a listicle about Ted Cruz, comparing Jeb’s political dynasty to Hillary’s, wondering why Trump can be a grump, but Hillary has to be nice, Paul’s lady problems, Huck’s wife, nope to Ben Carson and why Carly just can’t win.

We’ll be watching and tweeting under the hashtag #GOPDebateBroads, why don’t you join us?
