The Republican presidential nominees hold their 10th debate tonight on CNN, starting at 8:30 p.m. Eastern Standard Time. This is just before Super Tuesday, March 1, when nearly half of the delegates needed for nomination will be elected. So, for the candidates, everything is at stake.
So far the non-Trump candidates have been spending most of their time attacking each other, vying for coveted spot as “the alternative to Trump.” But now, expect them all to turn their guns on Trump. If he isn’t stopped, or at least slowed, on Super Tuesday, he will be the party’s nominee.
I won’t be live-blogging this debate, but feel free to comment on what you are seeing and hearing at this post. Details about the debate, which will be held in Houston, after the jump.

Who will moderate the debate?
Wolf Blitzer will be the primary moderator. Hugh Hewitt, Dana Bash and Telemundo’s Maria Celeste Arraras will contribute questions. NBC News was scheduled to host this debate before the Republican National Committee stepped in and “canceled its partnership” with the network over a dispute regarding thecontroversial 2015 CNBC debate. Blitzer moderated a December GOP debate in Las Vegas.
Who will participate?
The five remaining Republican candidates are expected to take the stage: Donald Trump, Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio, Ben Carson and John Kasich. The field is expected to narrow to three soon after the Tuesday primaries, with Kasich and Carson seen as having no viable path to the nomination.
