A lot has happened since the last Republican presidential debate took place over a month ago. The terror attacks in Paris last month and the mass shooting in San Bernardino, California earlier this month have added a level of seriousness to the race that before seemed like merely a chaotic circus.

Donald Trump remains -- as ever -- the Republican front-runner, and his increasingly controversial comments don’t seem to have hurt him. Just last week he called for a temporary ban on Muslims entering the United States, as politicians and voters have expressed significant fear about would-be terrorists sneaking into the country along with Syrian refugees.

Tuesday’s debate marks the last GOP showdown of 2015, and it’s sure to be an important one. CNN is hosting and the debate will take place in Las Vegas, Nevada. But for all of you watching from New York City, you’ll want a drink in hand as you watch what the GOP candidates say this time.
