The following excerpts from the seeded piece is a sampling of the individual coverage on each GOP candidate during the CNN debate. Findings of Politifact are within the piece:
"Former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina seized her moment on stage at the Republican debate, launching a passionate attack against Democratic policies on abortion and Planned Parenthood. Fiorina said defunding Planned Parenthood should be a priority since videos about fetal tissue procurement have been publicized.
Dr. Ben Carson, a retired pediatric neurosurgeon, took the side of science when asked about Donald Trump’s comments suggesting a link between vaccines and autism.
CNN moderator Jake Tapper asked Carson if Trump should stop making such claims.
Carson said Trump should look at the evidence, noting that there is "extremely well-documented proof that there’s no autism associated with vaccinations."
In the days before the debate, former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee flew to the side of Kentucky clerk Kim Davis, who went to jail rather than issue same-sex marriage licenses. Davis said it violated her religious beliefs to put her name to the forms.
"We made accommodation to the Fort Hood shooter to let him grow a beard," Huckabee said Wednesday night, adding, "You’re telling me that you cannot make an accommodation for an elected Democrat county clerk from Rowan County, Kentucky?"
Trump, meanwhile, erred in the debate by saying that Mexico doesn't have "birthright citizenship."
Mexico does offer birthright citizenship, even if it’s not an exact copy of the American model. Trump's claim rates False."
