The elephant in the room was the one that wasn't there.

Donald Trump held a fundraiser for veterans instead of taking part in Thursday night's Republican presidential debate on Fox News channel. Without Trump there, policy talk ruled the night.

WBUR political analysts Republican strategist Todd Domke and Democratic strategist Dan Payne joined WBUR's Morning Edition to recap the debate.

This segment aired on January 29, 2016.
