The Independent has rounded up the funniest, messiest, and most outrageous GOP debate stage moments from 2023.
There were four Republican presidential primary debates this year, with the first taking place in August. At the first debate, there were eight candidates present. At the fourth one, only four candidates were invited to join. Donald Trump did not participate in any primary debates.
The main players were consistently Nikki Haley, Chris Christie, Vivek Ramaswamy, and Ron DeSantis.
From yelling over each other about policy to poking fun at footwear, the Republican candidates showed their true colors on stage this year.
