See Who Got the Most Speaking Time During the Republican Debate

1 minute read

With 10 candidates on a debate stage grandstanding, sparring and talking over each other, it can be hard for anyone to break through and get their time in the spotlight.

But according to data compiled by insidegov.com, Carly Fiorina did that better than the other Republican contenders at the debate Wednesday night. The former CEO of Hewlett-Packard got the most speaking time of the debate with a little more than 10 minutes total, closely followed by Florida Sen. Marco Rubio.

Perhaps surprisingly, Donald Trump, who took center stage and is known for his bombast, only came in fourth. And former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, who TIME reports lost the debate overall, came in ninth. Bush only bested Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul, who came in last with just over six minutes of speaking time.
