Lindsey Graham has a clinched fist and an open hand
Welcome to PolitiFact’s live coverage of the Republican CNBC presidential debate. Coverage will begin shortly before 8 p.m. ET and we’ll be with you until the debate ends, analyzing the statements made by the 10 candidates on stage.
A lot of our work tonight relies on our extensive library of fact-checks. We’ve fact-checked more than 11,000 claims since we first launched in 2007. We’ve been fact-checking these Republicans for nearly that long.
Compare the Truth-O-Meter records of the Republican candidates here.
And as you might expect, politicians are often prone to repeat their past statements -- whether they’re true, false, or something in between.
