Ben Carson ended his presidential campaign Wednesday, but the debate is expected to host the full remaining field: Trump, Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio and John Kasich. All three moderators will have the chance to ask the candidates about climate change, an honor they have so far declined. But Megyn Kelly, in particular, has a long simmering dispute with the Republican frontrunner Donald Trump, who objected to her moderating a past debate, after she asked him (and other candidates) tough questions.
This will be the first time these candidates appear together since Trump dominated Super Tuesday, winning most of the states. That’s prompted a series of news articles and gossip columns about how Republican “establishment” is scrambling to deal with the insurgent leader — including a major speech today from 2012 Republican nominee Mitt “corporations are people” Romney.
The debate is also happening against the backdrop of the Flint water crisis and climate change. Yesterday, our team delivered about 100,000 signatures to the DNC and CNN asking them to fucos Sunday’s Democratic Debate on racial and environmental justice. Our call for #JusticeforFlint was received well on that side of the aisle, but there’s no sign either way how the Republican party or Fox News will respond to this news. The Michigan GOP primary is on Tuesday March 8, The politics of Michigan over the past few years have had serious implications for the ways Republicans think about the role of state governments, particularly in light of the Flint water crisis.
