WSJ: “A candidates’ debate that featured the fiercest face-to-face exchanges of the 2012 contest.”

AP: “Tim Pawlenty and Michele Bachmann sparred bitterly… seeking to break out of the GOP presidential pack ahead of an Iowa test vote with huge consequences.”

Daily Caller: “Say goodbye to Minnesota nice. The gloves came off Thursday night as Tim Pawlenty and Michele Bachmann, the two GOP presidential candidates from Minnesota, traded one-liners during a fiery Republican presidential debate.”
