With two contests down and the South Carolina primary only a week away, the six remaining Republican candidates took the debate stage Saturday night.

The debate, hosted by CBS News, featured lots of sparring between Donald Trump, Jeb Bush and Ted Cruz. Who spoke the longest? As always, NPR had its stopwatch at the ready.
