As you know by now both Chris Christie and Mike Huckabee have been demoted to next Tuesday's GOP undercard debate which airs on the Fox Business Channel. Christie & Huckabee were sent down because neither candidate averaged 2.5% or more in the last four national surveys. The GOP undercard debate will feature Christie, Huckabee along with Rick Santorum and Bobby Jindal. Lindsey Graham, George Pataki and Jim Gilmore did not qualify for this undercard debate.
Both Huckabee and Christie have made positive contributions to the debates and the two have engaged in an interesting debate over Social Security reform. It is a shame, but the herd must invariably thin.
