Top Ten Tweets from the #GOPDebate
Eleven Republican candidates running for president gathered at the Ronald Reagan library in California for the second GOP debate on Wednesday night.
Staged in front of Reagan’s Air Force One, the debate covered a broad range of topics, including marijuana, immigration, same-sex marriage and Planned Parenthood.
Front-runner Donald Trump and other candidates, including retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson and businesswoman Carly Fiorina, debated for three hours, providing endless fodder for social media commentary.
Here are the top 10 tweets from the night:

Carly Fiorina goes for irony, says don’t put a woman on the $10. It’s just a gesture. Recognize women’s contributions. #GOPdebate
