Ten Republicans are going to be on stage. The other seven will be on the stage during an earlier taping.
Donald Trump is ahead of Scott Walker and Jeb Bush. The media and business mogul is running high in the polls. This clown running is the insurgency's newest sensation. He is a straight shooter on issues but many point out that he offered no detail and it's extremely controversial.
It's going against the establishment. The establishment was embarrassed by the antics of Trump, Mike Huckabee and Ted Cruz.

This immigration discussion came into play. The issue is now being discussed. The Democrats want to help immigrants become U.S. citizens. They are pushing for comprehensive immigration reform.
Previously the senate passed reform with bipartisan support. But it died in the House.
Now Republicans on this pro-nationalist stance wanted to pass the Kate Steinle law. The law is to put immigrants who commit any form of criminal act in federal time out for five years. The law will also strip funding from cities that Republicans claim are sanctuary cities. The bill died in Congress.
Republicans blamed the Democrats for failure of leadership. It helped them win back Congress. Looks like the Republicans are the ones who are failing in leadership.
Now as Congress is about to leave Washington for their umpteenth vacation, many people are saying that the Republicans are so inept, it's possible the senate could flip back to Democratic control.
CNN reports that Juan Razo pleaded not guilty this week to an attempted murder charge stemming from a violence-filled July 27 that also included a woman's killing, an attempted rape and a shootout with officers in Painesville, Ohio.
Okay, for the concern trolls, who are they gonna blame for the tragedy?
A) Barack Obama
D) Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agency
E) The Suspect
F) All of The Above
If you picked E, then you are correct. The fault of a criminal acts always belongs to the person who committed the crime. It's not the fault of the president, another country, or other entities.
Congress and the president should work together to pass a bipartisan bill to deal with immigration.
The suspect Juan Razo is innocent until proven guilty. He is granted a fair trial among the citizens. He doesn't automatically go to jail and then gets deported. He has an opportunity to face the victims of the criminal act. He also has a right to appeal a decision. Razo does have a right to have an interpreter.
In addition to allegedly shooting and wounding a woman in the arm, police said that Razo, 35, attempted to rape his 14-year-old niece hours before he shot and killed Margaret Kostelnik, a 60-year-old woman who, according to CNN affiliate WEWS, was the secretary for the mayor in nearby Willoughby for nearly three decades.
He will face those charges at a preliminary hearing Monday, the Lake County prosecutor's office said.

"I have somebody who we don't know who he is, why he is in this country, why he is here illegally and why he allegedly committed a murder," fumed Judge Mike Cicconetti.
"I can't set a bond high enough."
HOLA, a Latino outreach organization based in Ohio, said it was "distraught and deeply saddened by the (alleged) violent acts committed by Juan Razo," but it said the real issue was Razo's mental illness, not the status of his green card.

When two Lake County sheriff's deputies approached Razo on July 7 while responding to a call of a suspicious vehicle parked near a golf course, he "was extremely nervous, sweating profusely, and making every attempt to avoid eye contact," Dunlap said. "When questioned, he provided a false name, was unable to give any type of identification, and he admitted to being in the United States illegally."
But because no crime was committed, and Razo had no criminal record, Dunlap said he lacked the authority to detain him, so he said a deputy called the agency that did: U.S. Customs and Border Protection. That's when Dunlap said Razo became uncooperative.

"Without legal authority to further detain Razo, he was released."
But the Department of Homeland Security, which oversees U.S. Customs and Border Protection, said that it was the agency that lacked the authority to detain Razo, and points the finger back at the sheriff.
"Border Patrol agents interviewed this individual via telephone at the request of the Lake County Sheriff's Office ... during that interview, Razo was uncooperative and the agents were unable to determine his immigration status," the statement read. "Without such a determination, the agents had no legal basis to file a detainer to hold the subject. Although the agents offered to meet with the deputies on site and interview the subject in person, the offer was declined and the subject was released."
DHS said that Razo's lack of a record -- and the fact that he had been in the United States so long -- meant he wasn't a top priority.
"The (Obama) Administration has set enforcement priorities to make sure our resources are focused on apprehending and removing convicted criminals, gang members, recent border crossers and the most significant threats to public safety and national security."
Republican frontrunner Donald Trump used Steinle's death to push his campaign's tough stance on immigration, including building a fence along the U.S.-Mexico border. It appears the Razo case would be no different.
"This is a clear indication of why we need a strong wall protecting our border," read a statement CNN affiliate WEWS obtained from campaign spokesman Corey Lewandowski. "Mr. Trump is an outspoken critic of illegal immigrants coming over our borders. That's why it's so important to have a wall that is impenetrable."
"We are disappointed to see leaders exploiting this tragedy to promote a political agenda," it said.
World News Today send our condolences to the family of Margaret Kostelnik.
