COLUMBIA - The Boone County Republican Central Committee held a watch party for the second Republican Presidential Debate at D'Rowes Wednesday night.

The 11 republican candidates with the highest poll numbers will took the CNN stage: Donald Trump, Ben Carson, Jeb Bush, Carly Fiorina, Scott Walker, Marco Rubio, Chris Christie, Rand Paul, Mike Huckabee, Ted Cruz, and John Kasich.

Mark Zweifel, chair of the Boone County Republican Central Committee, said the event was held as a way for Republicans in Boone County to come together.

"We just thought it would be a fun idea to have a debate watch party," Zweifel said. "With everybody together and just have a little fun with it."

Zweifel said he hopes there will be more barbs thrown during the second debate. Zweifel said he's looking forward to seeing how Carson and Fiorina perform tonight.

Homer Page, chair of the Boone County Democratic Committee, said he is watching to see how Donald Trump performs.

"I am hopeful that he will do very well," Page said. "Because running against Donald Trump would be a very happy thing for Democrats to do."

Trump is leading the polls, but Carson has emerged as a front-runner. CNN anchor Jake Tapper will moderate the debate and CNN chief political correspondent Dana Bash, and conservative radio host Hugh Hewitt will also ask questions.
