Seven GOP Presidential hopefuls faced off last night in the first debate of the primary season. The televised debate, hosted at St. Anselm College's in New Hampshire by CNN, gave the Republicans an opportunity to detail their stance on national and international issues, and to take aim at President Barack Obama, a Democrat who is seeking a second term.
The seven Republicans are:
- Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney
- U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann of Minnesota
- Former U.S. Sen. Rick Santorum of Pennsylvania
- U.S. Rep. Ron Paul of Texas
- Herman Cain, a businessman who is now a talk show host
- Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich
- Former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty
