The remaining five Republican candidates will meet for a final debate on Thursday 25 February before the highly anticipated Super Tuesday. The GOP debate, which will take place at the University of Houston, will be co-hosted by Telemundo and CNN and will focus primarily on issues affecting Latino voters.
"Telemundo is the only network in the country to have all presidential candidates engaging in a direct dialogue with the Latino community before Super Tuesday," Luis Silberwasser, President of Telemundo Network, said in a press release. "Our Democratic Forum and Republican Debate are a direct consequence of our objective, balanced and relevant #YODECIDO (#IDECIDE) news coverage."
The debate will follow two primaries and two caucuses, which have helped wittle down the somewhat overcrowded GOP field. Following a devastating loss in the South Carolina primary on 20 February, former Florida Governor Jeb Bush dropped out of his campaign, leaving just five candidates competing.
Latest Republican presidential polls nationally continue to show the bombastic real estate mogul Donald Trump leading. A Fox News poll released on 18 February shows Trump ahead of Texas Senator Ted Cruz by 17 points, 36% to 19%. Trump recently won the South Carolina primary, taking home 50 delegates, and is poised to win again in Nevada on Tuesday 23 February.
