We’re liveblogging the Fox News Republican debate tonight live from lovely Des Moines, Iowa!

Even though Donald Trump will not be part of this GOP primary slugfest, his now-arch-enemy Ted Cruz will be there. So will Marco Rubio, Chris Christie, Jeb Bush, and even Rand Paul, who after being relegated to the kiddie table last debate, will back on the main stage tonight trading jabs with the rest of the contenders. The undercard debate starts at 7pm ET, and the main event follows at 9pm ET. Stay tuned!
