GOP Strategist: All eyes On Cruz And Trump In Thursday's Debate

Republican Strategist Ford O'Connell says he will be watching for contentious moments between Donald Trump and Ted Cruz in the first Republican debate of 2016 Thursday night, as the two top contenders in Iowa look to edge each other out.

"At the end of the day, it's whether or not ted cruz and Donald trump are going to finally take the gloves off on the debate stage and go after each other because they are neck and neck in a lot of polls, and one of them wants to become the nominee."

Trump recently stepped up attacks against Cruz through tv ads and raised questions about Cruz's eligibility to run, and while O'Connell predicts Cruz will deflect most of Trump's attacks, he will push back on the citizenship issue.
