Romney vs Giuliani

With one-third of the debate already gone, the sniping between Giuliani and Romney has been the central dynamic thus far.

Romney is working hard to make sure viewers know that he and Giuliani differ when it comes to immigration, seemingly slipping in the fact that New York was a "sanctuary" city at every turn. After Giuliani pushed back on the idea that he supports amnesty, Romney went back at him, arguing that Giuliani's welcoming message to illegal immigrants during his mayorship was "not the right message."

Not to be outdone, Giuliani used a question about the safety of New York City to note that it was 59 percent more likely that you would be the victim of a crime in Boston than in New York. Think he just plucked Boston out of the air? We think not.

It's clear that both Giuliani and Romney view the other as their main adversary in the fight for the nomination. Watch to see how this back and forth develops in the remaining hour of the debate.
