Low-polling Republican candidates bash Trump in pre-debate gathering

Republican U.S. presidential candidates Pataki, Santorum, Jindal and Graham gather onstage for a debate between the lowest polling candidates at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in Simi ValleyBy Steve Holland and Erin McPike SIMI VALLEY, Calif. (Reuters) – Low-polling Republican presidential candidates attempted to cast doubt on lead rival Donald Trump on Wednesday, venting their frustrations at the state of the 2016 race by calling the billionaire a fake conservative with a checkered business past. Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal and former New York Governor George Pataki led the charge against Trump at a debate of four candidates who did not have enough strength in opinion polls to make it to a prime-time debate later. The so-called “undercard” debate at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library of four candidates immediately preceded the main event featuring Trump and 10 other Republicans who are doing the best in the polls.
