Republican club simulates GOP candidate debate

If you want to get a closer look at the GOP candidates running for president, the Greater Toledo Republican Club is holding a presidential straw poll debate on Thursday evening.

The event consists of "representatives" of each candidate in a debate format. Each representative will have a specific amount of time for a presentation and a rebuttal.

The "representatives" are standing in for Newt Gingrich, Ron Paul, Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum.

The debate is being held Thursday night at the Wernert's Corner Civic Association building at 8 p.m.
