Presidential Debate in Milwaukee Tonight

It should be fun to watch.

MILWAUKEE (AP) — Organizers are promising to focus on substance when eight Republicans face off on the main stage for the GOP’s fourth presidential debate.

While that’s the plan, big personalities and rising tensions in the unsettled 2016 field could make for an unpredictable Tuesday evening in Milwaukee. Donald Trump and Ben Carson are fighting to maintain their place atop the polls, while others — including Jeb Bush — are fighting for their political survival in the 9 p.m. EST event.

It’s also a nice little boost to downtown businesses. Hotel rooms and dinner reservations have been a bit more difficult to get in downtown yesterday and today.
