**What to watch for in Saturday’s Republican debate **
As six Republican candidates prepare for the South Carolina primary, Saturday night debate viewers should watch for fights on topics as different as immigration policy and personal character.
As the Republican candidates careen towards the South Carolina primary on Feb. 20, expect immigration and infighting to take center stage.
With one state in the bag each, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz and business mogul Donald Trump are each looking for a second primary win coming into Saturday’s debate on CBS at 8 p.m. Eastern. Both candidates have started to go mean as their rivalry intensifies, and viewers are likely to see that come out during the debate.
Mr. Cruz beat Mr. Trump in Iowa by a narrow margin - just over three percent. Trump sailed to victory in New Hampshire with about 67,000 more votes than Cruz.
A focus on problems doesn’t tell the whole story. Fight the fear. Share hope.
With Real Clear Politics reporting that Trump is polling an average of 17 points ahead of Cruz heading into the South Carolina primary, expect each to go after the other.
The two have been exchanging insults over the airways in a possible preview of the debate. One Cruz ad referred to Trump’s “pattern of sleaze.”
The whole complexion of the debate changes and the candidates obviously will be addressing who they would choose as a Supreme Court appointment or at least, this situation.
