Republican debate: What time, what channel, live stream

With Iowa out of the way, but not without controversy, the remaining candidates for the Republican nomination for president will come together in New Hampshire for their eighth debate Saturday night.

There will be no undercard debate this time as three candidates -- former Sen. Rick Santorum, former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee and Sen. Rand Paul -- have all suspended their campaigns. Those who  will be onstage  include: businessman Donald Trump, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, Dr. Ben Carson, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and Ohio Gov. John Kasich.

Former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina did not receive an invitation to join the men on stage, despite outperforming Kasich and Christie in Iowa. ABC says she will not be included in the debate, making her the only candidate for the Republican nomination not on stage Saturday.

Ted Cruz

Ben Carson

Marco Rubio

Chris Christie  

John Kasich

Where they will stand: Trump will stand center-stage with Cruz, Carson and Christie to his left. Rubio, Bush and Kasich will be to his right.

Likely issues:

While we don't know for sure, the likely issues to be raised in the debate include:

1. The validity of the results of the Iowa caucus – Trump claims Cruz put out false information about Carson leaving the race, asking Carson supporters  to caucus for him.

2. Who is “establishment?” – Which candidate will claim to be the least of the “insiders.”

3. Rubio’s accomplishments – Rick Santorum endorsed Rubio when he suspended his campaign, but had trouble naming Rubio’s accomplishments as a senator when asked by a reporter.

4. Immigration – The issue was a contentious one in the last debate.

5. Terrorism – It’s something a large number of Americans still say is one of their top concerns.

When's the next one:

The next Republican debate is scheduled for Feb. 13, in South Carolina. It will be hosted by CBS News.

The next Democratic debate will be Feb. 11, in Milwaukee, Wisc. It’s sponsored by PBS and the Wisconsin Democratic Party.

Local restaurants prepare for Sunday’s big game

Restaurants around the Charlotte area are scrambling to prepare for Sunday’s big game.
 
Draft bar and restaurant set-up a tent and rented more seating to accommodate several hundred people who have already made reservations to watch Super Bowl 50 at the restaurant Sunday.
 
"Obviously we're proud to be right here and cheering for our hometown Panthers,” Summer Wyatt said. “It’s going to be a great day.”
 
A great day and one potentially for the record books at Draft bar and restaurant.
 
Already managers at the restaurant have taken calls from 300 people requesting reservations.
 
And all week long they've been training for it.

More food more kegs. We will have more food fresh in the morning more of our staff preparing so we have drinks and great food,” Wyatt said.  
 
Across town, the manager at DD Peckers took call after call Saturday morning.
 
“The phone has been ringing since the panthers clinched the Super Bowl,” he said.
 
So far he has pre-orders for nearly 50,000 wings.
 
"This year we've already had more pre-orders than we sell for a whole day of the super bowl,” Justin Holland said.
 
His team will have to wake early Sunday and cook hundreds of wings each hour in addition to serving day of customers who'll watch the game at his restaurant inside unusual, but welcomed business.
 
"We think the max we can do is 15,000 and we have 13 already. If you need some order now unfortunately the phone is going to be off the hook Sunday. 

Later Saturday, Channel 9 learned that wing store had orders for about 1,000 more wings by Saturday afternoon.
