It was a fierce debate for the four Republican candidates Wednesday night. It was the last debate before some crucial primaries and the first debate in almost a month.

WBUR's political analysts, Democrat Dan Payne and Republican Todd Domke, joined WBUR's Morning Edition to give us a roundup of the debate.
