As the top Republican candidates for president were battling it out on the debate stage in Las Vegas Tuesday night, another candidate, a Democrat, made a very popular announcement.
The hit Netflix show "House of Cards" announced during a commercial break that the long-awaited season four would make its debut March 4, 2016.

The announcement was prefaced with a realistic campaign ad that featured sweeping shots of America, citizens hard at work, military fighter jets and families, with a voiceover that said, "It's a new day in America."
The ad then cut to "President Francis J. Underwood" in his television Oval Office where he says, "America, I'm only getting started."
The March 4 debut of season four will take place right in the middle of the busy, real-world primary season, or just three days after "Super Tuesday," when 12 states will hold their primaries.
