Republican presidential candidates debated Wednesday at the Ronald Reagan library in California, one of more than 20 states that hold nominating contests Feb. 5. And there was one less Republican on the stage than there was in the last debate.

Rudolph Giuliani officially ended his presidential bid Wednesday, after a disappointing third-place finish in Tuesday's Florida primary. He threw his support to the Florida winner, John McCain.
