Video: Watch Highlights From Tonight’s Republican Primary Debate in Iowa


If you spent Thursday night watching Jersey Shore or Project Runway instead of the Fox News Republican primary debate in Iowa you missed a fiery exchange between Chris Wallace and Newt Gingrich over his evaporating staff, and some charming chatter about lightbulbs and dog food. Frontrunner Mitt Romney stuck to his playbook, reframing every question to criticize President Obama while doing his best to ignore everyone else on stage. Michele Bachmann and Tim Pawlenty did their best to destroy Minnesota’s reputation for niceness. And, sorry, Rick Perry, but if you don’t show up, everyone’s gonna gossip about you. See some of the best zingers and strangest moments in our video compilation.
