Last night's CNN Repubublican debate took place at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library, and three hours and 11 candidates later... this race just got interesting, folks!

Both Carly Fiorina and Marco Rubio had a solid evening. Fiorina proved why she belonged on the debate stage, and Rubio proved last night why so many GOP elites have long considered him a top contender for the Republican nomination in 2016.

I thought that Fiorina brought finesse to the table as she took aim at the Republican front-runner Donald Trump. She recieved the biggest pop of the night as she harshly criticized Planned Parenthood.

Marco Rubio took on Trump differently than Fiorina or Bush, taking on the Trump without attacking him directly, instead steering the debate toward his strengths and ideas for the nation's future.

As for as Donald Trump, the panal of contenders were ready to go to battle with the billionaire. Scott Walker and Jeb Bush went after Trump early, eager to regain their faltering standings in the polls.
