Republicans Ready for Milwaukee Debate

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie and former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee are off the main stage.

Tuesday night’s debate will be a little different from the heavily criticized CNBC debate about two weeks ago.

The Fox Business Network moderators have said they will focus mainly on business and economic issues, while not trying to steal the spotlight from the candidates vying for the Republican presidential nomination.

A party spokesman tells CBS 58 that's what the GOP is hoping for, a chance for voters to hear where these candidates stand. He also says the party was not involved in making tonight's debate rules.

Wisconsin Congressman Sean Duffy is backing Florida Senator Marco Rubio, “we'll showcase not just Republican politics but beer and cheese curds and brats. It's a wonderful thing for the state. But for the debate and republican candidates I think it's important, I think we're going to finally get to a set of issues that matter to the American voter."

Rubio is in third place in the polls, Ben Carson is second, and once again Donald Trump will be center stage.

Monday night Trump attacked Rubio on twitter not long after Rubio held an event in Pewaukee.
