Scorecard: How the GOP candidates fared in their 2nd debate

RAND PAUL

Standing at far stage right, Paul had the best line of the night on the Iraq war and the fight against the Islamic State. “If you want boots on the ground, and you want them to be our sons and daughters, you got 14 other choices.

JOHN KASICH

Like Rubio, tried to steer clear of Trump attacks. Promoted compassion for drug offenders, recommended Mother Teresa be enshrined on U.S. currency and touted and projected a cheerfulness “where everybody’s actions make a huge difference in changing the world.”

___

CHRIS CHRISTIE

Kept his focus on middle class voters, memorably criticizing Fiorina and Trump arguing over the business resumes, saying struggling Americans “could care less.” Projected a law-and-order image: the former prosecutor opposed legalizing marijuana when some called it a state issue.
