The five remaining Republican presidential candidates met Thursday night in Houston for the final debate before Super Tuesday.

To qualify for the debate, hosted by CNN, candidates had to get 5 percent support in any of the New Hampshire and South Carolina primaries or Iowa and Nevada caucuses.

The winner will get a big boost ahead of Super Tuesday, the day when the most states and delegates are at stake. Who ended up with the most talking time? As always, NPR had its stopwatch at the ready.
