American Bridge President’s Statement On Tonight’s Debate

American Bridge President Jessica Mackler released the following statement in response to tonight’s Republican debate:
 

“The Republican Party’s disarray was on full display as tonight’s debate degenerated into chaos. On immigration, Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio relentlessly attacked each other in their race to equal Donald Trump’s radicalism. Instead of talking meaningful policy, the candidates spent their night desperately throwing punches, ensuring the eventual nominee will be bruised and bloodied with extremism. The Republican candidates have all failed the commander in chief test, but there’s no end in sight to the messy bloodbath that is damaging down-ballot candidates and the entire party.”
