Stephen Maynard Caliendo broke down the first Republican Debate

Republicans kicked the 2024 election into its next gear with their first presidential debate late August. But even as the party hosted its most important event yet, its frontrunner, former President Trump, was notably absent.

Eight candidates that were on stage: Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis; entrepreneur Vivek Ramaswamy; former Vice President Mike Pence; former South Carolina governor and US ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley; former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie; South Carolina Sen. Tim Scott; former Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson and North Dakota Gov. Doug Burgum.

Stephen Maynard Caliendo, dean of the College of Arts and Sciences at North Central College, interviewed on FOX 32 Chicago and CBS 2 Chicago, where he previewed the anticipated takeaways from the GOP debate.
