Last time with the CNBC moderators, their questions, and the format became the story. We’ll see what happens this time as the Fox Business Network hosts the affair. Of course, once again Jeb Bush has promised he’ll do good this time. And of course all the others mired in single digits see that they are running out of chances to make an impact. And of course there are the leaders… Ben Carson under scrutiny for recollections he has published regarding his life story. And Donald Trump, who without fail, fires back, and fires back hard, at anybody who takes a shot at him. Aaron is in Milwaukee for the debate, Trey offers his insights from Washington DC.

The University of Missouri system’s president, Tim Wolfe, resigned Monday morning in the face of a walkout by faculty and a strike by football players who said he had done too little to combat racism on campus.  Wolfe made the stunning announcement at the start of a special Board of Curators meeting Monday morning to address the growing crisis at the Show Me state’s flagship university. The board voted in favor of accepting his resignation  Students complaining about a racially-fraught campus environment began protests at the university on Sept. 24, but the tense situation on campus had only recently begun to gain national attention.

Charging the racism is rampant on the University of Missouri campus, and nothing is being done about it, that school’s football team, coaching staff included, has gone on strike, saying that they won’t go back to the field until university President Tim Wolfe steps down.  Another student is currently on a hunger strike, also until Wolfe steps down.  Needless to say, these extraordinary developments have cast a huge spotlight on Missouri and the events and circumstances that brought the campus to this point.  For his part, Wolfe says there is a problem, but it will take a few months to draw up a plan to fix it.
