Seven candidates vying for the Republican presidential nomination take the stage on Wednesday in Simi Valley for the second debate of the 2024 campaign. They’re expected to take questions on the looming government shutdown, the economy and the war in Ukraine – and make the case to donors and supporters that they can take on Donald Trump. The former president, who’s under four indictments and leads the primary field by a wide margin, will again skip the debate and plans instead to speak to an audience of current and former autoworkers in Detroit. We’ll recap the debate and hear your reactions.
