Watch the Tenth Republican Debate in Three Minutes

And then there were five

Republicans faced off Thursday night in their tenth debate of the 2016 election.

Donald Trump found himself deflecting attacks from all sides as opponents tried to dethrone the front-runner in Houston, Texas. There was a fiery exchange with Florida Sen. Marco Rubio and a verbal lashing of Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, both of whom are competing to rally the rest of the party around themselves in an attempt to be the Republican nominee.

Lighter moments of the debate include Ben Carson’s comments about fruit salad.

Watch the highlights from the debate above.
