Tomorrow’s republican presidential candidates debate in Orlando is being super-sized. The debate, which was to run 1 hour 45 minutes will now be 2 hours since former New Mexico governor Gary Johnson made the cut. Moderator Bret Baier, is joined by Megyn Kelly, Chris Wallace and Shannon Bream for the debate which begins at 9pmET. More than 17,000 questions have been submitted to Fox News’s YouTube Channel, in both video and text form.
Fox News Channel’s Shannon Bream is profiled in this month’s Northern Virginia magazine, and the Washington correspondent reflects on her interesting, and unusual, career path. Bream was a corporate lawyer in Tampa — which she described as “a square peg in a round hole” — before getting her start at a local station in Florida:
“It was love at first sight being in the newsroom,” recalls Bream. “I immediately felt this is where I was meant to be all along.” An intern at Tampa’s ABC affiliate, WFTS-TV, Bream worked as a corporate lawyer by day and then into the wee hours at the station by night and on weekends—all in addition to attending a necessary class to qualify as an intern.

“Ben, shut up!” said Rosenberg as the two debated the tactics in the medicare fight. To anchor Shannon Bream‘s credit, she twice asked the GOP guest to stop interrupting so Rosenberg could finish.
But after he ceded the floor, Rosenberg took out his IFB and pulled off his mic and walked out anyway. “You can pout, and that’s what you guys do well,” Ferguson taunted as Rosenberg left the studio. Video after the jump.
