Although it may seem early, the race to the White House will soon be in full swing. Tomorrow night, Fox News will host the first Republican presidential primary debate, where candidates who met the Republican National Committee imposed requirements will take the stage.
Though almost every major GOP candidate for president will be on stage, there will be one glaring absence: Former President Donald Trump. Trump announced he would forgo the debate, instead opting to pre-tape an interview with conservative ally Tucker Carlson, which will air at the same time as the debate.
For many voters, it will be the first time they hear from the candidates directly on the most important issues of the day. While we will be keeping an eye out for any and all comments relating to voting rights and democracy, the GOP candidates have already produced a stark record that makes their stances on the matters quite clear.
