Trump casts shadow over Republican low-poller debate

Republican Presidential candidate Donald Trump waves following a speech on board the World War II bettlaship USS Iowa in San Pedro, California on September 15, 2015Free from having to square off against irreverent Republican frontrunner Donald Trump in person, four low-polling candidates took the debate stage Wednesday and slammed the billionaire as a non-Republican unfit to be president. Fireworks were expected in the main event to follow, where Trump takes center stage with 10 challengers in the crowded 2016 nomination battle, as rivals build their case against the real estate tycoon and his claim that he is the best person to take on Democratic frontrunner Hillary Clinton. “Let’s stop treating Donald Trump like a Republican,” said Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal, referring to the left-leaning positions on issues such as abortion and taxes that Trump has previously held.
