Last night, the four remaining candidates for the Republican presidential nomination took the stage in Mesa for the party's 20th presidential debate of the election cycle.

There's less than a week to go before Arizona's presidential primary, and according to the pollsters, the race is tight -- likely to be taken by either Mitt Romney or Rick Santorum.

Last night's debate probably didn't help clear things up too much either.

Read the recap of last night's debate by clicking here.

Romney differed in opinion on immigration from Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio -- although he claimed he's singlehandedly toss out the lawsuit against the state's immigration law -- while Santorum puckered up a bit to the sheriff.

Neither Arpaio nor Governor Jan Brewer have endorsed any of the (remaining) candidates as of yet.

Still, we'd like to hear from you -- who won last night's Republican debate?

To hear Rick Santorum mushing on about the great MCSO shurf was sickening, honestly. Obviously Santorum is nothing more than a political whore willing to sell his soul for a few votes, just like his hero, the MCSO  shurf.

To be known as "Joe Paul" or "Joe Rick" isn't working out too well these days, eh?

Gingrich is a proven criminal and an out and out liar.    If he's your boy you sure picked a winner.

Newt won last nights debate by far over ev1 else. He is the only one smart enough too not only destroy Oblamo in the debates, but he is the only candidate with Real Solutions to the problems that plague our country.He is Not part of the elite establishment. Very smart articulate man with Real Solutions.

Where as Romney is just another version of oblamo...same old song, same old dance.Controlled by Bilderberg and the trilateral commission and the CFR.
Santorum loss badly in the debate.

Ron Paul is the only honest person left in this "race."  Let's do our best to make sure they don't continue rigging it against him.

Who proofs these articles?  Apparently nobody... "(Romney) claimed he's singlehandedly toss out the lawsuit against the state's immigration law"...  so either he would to toss out the lawsuit, or he's already tossed out the lawsuit.  Which is it, Matthew?

The debate was a joke!  Mitt and Rick were purposefully positioned center stage.  EVERY question went to either Mitt OR Rick FIRST.  When the camera panned out from Mitt and Rick, it was only to include Newt in the picture.  Rick Santorum is nothing more than an easily led buffoon who tows the party line.  He even admitted to voting FOR bills that he didn't believe in, but did so to be a "team player."  I don't know about you, but NEITHER "team" (D or R) has done SQUAT for me!  Mitt Romeny in my opinion is a carbon copy of Obama.  Newt "the politician's politician" seems to be mooching on Ron Paul's gig, but anyone who can't see through that is nothing short of a fool!  When asked to describe himself in one word, this @$$ hat chose "cheerful."  I'm sure anyone who has profited as much as he has from corruption and DIDN'T end up in jail would be "cheerful."  Essentially, you have choice between three politicians and one STATESMAN.  Let me make this easy on all of you NON-THINKERS...the fact that the media all but IGNORES Ron Paul, should tip you off that he should be your choice.  I don't give a sh!t about $2.50/gal. gasoline.  I'm more concerned with the future of America, our freedoms (which are increasingly being eroded) and reducing the size, scope and WASTEFUL spending of the federal government.  If you hadn't noticed, I'm for Ron Paul.  Why???  Because big banking IS NOT...because big media corporations ARE NOT...because career politicians who benefit from our CORRUPT government ARE NOT.  If you think anyone other than Ron Paul is going to work toward REAL change in this country, go ahead and slap yourself.

Obama added 5 trillion to our national debt in less than 4 years. If he gets re-elected, how much more trillion will he add to the national debt , without re-election to worry about? He could easily double that to 10 trillion in the next four years. All he needs to do is continue borrowing from China and the Chinese will soon own us. One day , we'll wake up to find that we no longer live in the USA but in the United States of China. God Save AMERICA!!!

 You've fallen into the same old trap.  How much longer will you people vote crappy politicians OUT, instead of voting REAL statesmen IN???  "Anyone but Obama" is the exact reason why we have SHITTY GOP candidates.  The Republicans know they can throw any old sack of shit up there and YOU will vote for him.

Hey dumb ass the National debt is high due to lack of proper taxation of the and massive spending!

You cant cut the deficit by lowering taxes year after year. You cant balance a check book if you are not taking in more than your spending.  Limiting spending is only half of the problem you have to bring in more revenue. Somehow you dumb ass Republitards thinks that taxing is un american. Do you know Reagan only lowered taxes one year and raised them 7 times during his stint in office including an aggressive taxing of the countries wealthy.  Unless you tax properly and spend wisely we will continue to be upside down! 

So your at least half of the problem so fact check before you spew your Faux News!As for the 5 trillion Obama has only been in office 3 years that well he had to pay for the war on Terror in Iraq Afghanistan, Pakistan is 3.4  to 4 trillion and you have the bailout of the Banks and the Auto bailouts 1 trillion and counting and I'm pretty sure that all of these events started long before January of 2008.

4 more years of obama and there will be no more usa. We will be a third world country with sociALIZED medicine. He doesn't give a toot because he made lots of money the past four years for himself and spent all of the taxpayers on failed bailouts. We are in very big trouble not only here but in the middle east. if you want to commit suicide vote for him again. You will be waiting years for surgergy and will not be rewarded for hard work. The lazy offs on medicaid will be getting all the benefits just by staying home and doing nothing.

 winning the race is unimportant.  Stating and sharing the potentials he has been carrying for others' freedom into the public eye and discourse is what is important.  Soon, only those who live fully in truth will be able to stay healthy in these human bodies; there's a change in the way the local part of this universe is happens soon after the election.  By being sharing truth and that this is commendable to this nation andthe world enables more of humanity to surthive throughout all the adjustments and be very helpful to ourselves and others.  If you choose to view these words as metaphor, difficulties lie in your future.

your the dumbass here were already taxed up to 35%, thats more than 1/3rd of your paycheck. You want to fork up 50%??? YOU STUPID PIECE OF SHIT. The reason the economy is bad is because of all the jobs that went over seas.

DOMINO EFFECT. 1. People lost jobs. 2. People lost money. 3. People couldnt spend that money. 4. Less money spent=less income for companies. 5. Less income for companies=Less tax revenue for GOV. no to mention with less income for people=less tax revenue

ON TOP OF THAT were blowing money on WARS, FIGHTING DRUGS, FOREIGN AID, UPKEEP FOR NUKES, and BAILOUTS. Also we have INFLATION because the dollar is based on the demand for OIL, and isint backed by ANYTHING!!!!

When will you stupid ass republicans and democrats realize that BOTH PARTIES WILL DO THE SAME SHIT!!!!! Its PEPSI or COKE, BOTH ARE BAD FOR YOU!!!!

Vote Ron Paul!!!!! He wants to END UNCONSTITUTIONAL WARS, END THE FAKE WAR ON DRUGS (The govt is in on it I know Los Zetas Members, they use the GM plants to put cain in the brand new cars, then ship them across the border to the dealships that the Zetas own). REINSATE GOLD AS CURRENCY, and END THE INCOME TAX. 

WAKE THE FUCK UP!!!

You fucking liberals are all the same!! You have no answer or knowledge whatsoever, you just throw around immature comments. I would bet that you either, don't pay taxes, live with your parents, do not own a house, and you are probably a high school dropout!! Get an education before you speak!! Also anyone that voted for Obama in 2008, obviously is uneducated, but if they vote for him again, then they do not deserve to breath the same air as true Americans.

 No, it's not funny when the United States of America become another Greece and go from greatness to bankruptcy. Our national debt will not just disappear in thin air. No, it's not funny when our children and grandchildren cannot realize the American dream in the future because of the recklessness and irresponsibility of  President Obama.

Gosh Scottevorik, it's wonderful to hear someone speak with such certitude. Even when, no, make that especially, when they're dead wrong.
Your description is of liberals is quite vituperative, nothing like smearing folks of differing opinions with ad homonym statements, eh?. Oh dear, where shall I start in tearing you a new one? How about with this populist. [me]
I, according to you:  "don't pay taxes, live with [my] parents, do not own a house, and ... are probably a high school dropout!!"
I suppose you score on the first claim since I'm retired Law enforcement, thirty years of it behind me, Of course that wouldn't count either since I was only serving the community and state and not in BUSINESS.  
I'm too bloody old to live with my parents , and they're both dead anyway, so you lose there, 
I own my own home, and have for twenty-five years ... but then I didn't jump around switching lenders and raising the level of the mortgage to buy toys, wasn't that the fashionable thing in the late nineties and oughts, raising your mortgage to the point that it was impossible to pay off? That's two, or maybe three, of three wrong so far.

I've a Bachelor's in Geology and a Masters in Fisheries Science. So much for the dropout theory.
I voted for Obama in '08, I worked for the campaign, worked as a poll watcher, and will happily do the same this year, when the President is elected to four more years. Oh, but if I voted for him then ... I must be uneducated.  Hmmm, how to answer that charge ... how about ... see CV above. That's either three, or four of four dead wrong, shall we continue?

I do know what's going on, and been watching and participating in the political arena since the sixties. Which is why I confidently predict a victory for the president this November.

Further, I fully intend to keep on breathing the air here in Arizona, everybodies air ... although I do hope it's not the same air as you, sir, for I fear your vituperative diatribes foul the very ether.

You, a true American? ... It is to laugh. What you are, sir; is foul-mouthed ,hate-filled ranting fool ... on a good day.

In deference to your mental acumen, I tried to keep "big words" out of this post. You understand how hard it is for we uneducated liberals and populists to use them correctly.

You may want to start with wall street and corporate greed when it comes to tanking the economy, not to mention all of the corrupt politicians stuffing their pockets on the taxpayers dime.
