"Mr. Trump later said he was talking about your persona, not your appearance. Please feel free to respond what you think about his persona," Tapper said to Carly Fiorina. 

"I want to give the person you called a hypocrite a chance to respond. You want to identify that person?" Tapper asked. 

"I think if we left it open we could see how many people smoked pot in high school," Rand Paul said. 


"He was talking about me," Jeb Bush said. 

"Why is raising the federal minimum wage lame?" Tapper asked Scott Walker. 

"What woman would you like to see on the $10 bill?" Tapper asked the candidates. 

"It's a heartbreak, honestly. ... We tried to let the candidates debate. ... Whoever's doing the next debate, let me know. I'll forward... CNBC? You have my number," Tapper said.
