Tonight the GOP hopefuls for the 2016 presidential race will spar in the second televised debate. Analysts are saying that it's important for Jeb Bush, who is struggling to regain his place at the top. They're also focused on Mr. Trump, especially since he'll be sharing the stage with businesswomen Carla Fiorna. Mr. Trump has been criticized for his so-called comments on her physical appearance.
