National security and foreign policy were the focus of tonight's debate held at Constitution Hall in Washington, DC.
The candidates presented divergent views on issues like foreign aid, war, defense spending, and illegal immigration.
No major gaffes were made and, unlike some debates, enough differences of policy and approach were expressed that voters will be able to determine which candidate's positions are most in line with their views.
