It's that time again. The remaining four Republican candidates will meet for the 12th time on 10 March for a GOP debate in Miami, Florida. The debate comes on the heels of several wins by frontrunner Donald Trump on 8 March, as all four candidates prepare for the upcoming primaries on 15 March.
The upcoming races in several states, including Florida, will be particularly important for Florida Senator Marco Rubio and Ohio Governor John Kasich, who will face must-win competitions in their home states. Recent polls reveal Trump continues to lead in Florida, by as much as 23 points in a poll by Fox News, but appears to be losing ground in Ohio, where Kasich has eked a 5 point gain.
Prior to the 15 March primaries, the candidates will vie for support of voters on 12 March in Washington DC, where there are 19 delegates up for grabs, and Wyoming, where there are 26. Three days later, five states—Florida, Illinois, Missouri, North Carolina and Ohio—will put 358 delegates at stake.

The GOP debate will begin broadcasting live at 8.30pm EST/1.30am GMT from the University of Miami in Miami, Florida.
