What: CNN/Western Republican GOP debate live from Nevada
When: Tonight -- Tuesday, Oct. 18 @ 8 p.m. ET
With the Iowa caucuses and New Hampshire primary now less than 90 days away, all eyes will be on the GOP's top contenders tonight as they square off in Las Vegas. Participating tonight will be Mitt Romney, Herman Cain, Rick Perry, Michele Bachmann, Ron Paul, Rick Santorum and Newt Gingrich. John Huntsman plans to skip the debate in protest of Nevada's decision to move its own GOP caucuses to Jan. 14.
Hope to see you tonight!
