TYLER - The four remaining Republican Candidates battled it out in South Carolina for the states final debate before Saturday's primary.
The first question on the night was about Gingrich's ex wife who recently spoke to ABC about their failed marriage.
The debate followed on the heels of several other big stories.
Perry backed out of the race and endorsed Gingrich.
Rick Santorum won the the Iowa Caucus.
Then there was Romney, questioned on his tax records, and weather he would follow his fathers lead and release several years of records.
To Joanne Flemming with Grassroots America we the people, with candidates dropping out, and the field slimming down, debates like this, will only continue as the remaining four seek the republican nomination.
"This is the time when primary candidates are supposed to duke it out now, hopefully they stay away from personal attacks and focus on records and on positions on policy."
