Presidential Debate on Monday March 21, 2016 ???

I learned this information from the link  below to the Salt Lake Tribune article.

I found this article link in the right column on this very blog (WJD030GOP).

The Presidential Debate in Salt Lake City has been up in the air. Trump said he was tired of debates and thought we had had enough debates and therefore he was not going to come to Salt Lake City. But after losing to Governor Kasich in Ohio yesterday he may have changed his mind according to the Salt Lake Tribune.

The debate will be in the Salt Palace and be moderated by Fox News.

However I just went to http://www.realclearpolitics.com/  (one of my favorite web sites)

and found this article in the Washington Examiner.

According to this article Donald Trump will not be coming to Utah for the debate. So will Kasich and Cruz debate each other? What will happen in Utah?

The Utah GOP will have 40 delegates at the National Republican Convention. If one candidate gets more than 50% of the votes in the Tuesday Caucuses then that candidate will get all 40 delegates for himself. If one candidate does not get more than 50% then the delegates will be awarded proportionally to the votes cast.

So it seems like the Trump, Cruz and Kasich would all want to get more than 50% of the Utah Caucus vote. Be sure to vote in Tuesday's Caucus. Your vote will make a difference!
