Republicans Debate

SIMI VALLEY, Calif. (AP) -- The Republicans get their chance tonight.

Ten G-O-P candidates for president will square off in a 90-minute debate at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in Simi Valley, California. The debate is being sponsored by M-S-N-B-C and The Politico.

One G-O-P strategist has some advice for front runners Rudy Giuliani, John McCain and Mitt Romney: "This is batting practice. Don't get hurt."

The three heavyweights are expected to play up their accomplishments and outline their visions for the future.

Lesser-known candidates like Senator Sam Brownback of Kansas and former Governors Mike Huckabee of Arkansas, Tommy Thompson of Wisconsin and Jim Gilmore of Virginia are simply looking for respect.

The Democratic candidates held a similar debate last week.
