Welcome to our live coverage of tonight’s Republican debate. Held at the University of Houston, the CNN/Google debate will begin at 8:30 PM EST.

I’m reporting live from the spin room tonight. For those updates, see my feed beneath.

For the best way to watch the debate, we defer to CNN:

Where can I watch it?
CNN will broadcast the debate live on CNN, CNN International and CNN en Espanol, and it will be translated live on Telemundo. The network will also provide a live stream of the debate on CNN.com’s home page and across mobile platforms, available to all users without having to log in.

How will it work?
CNN anchor Wolf Blitzer will moderate the debate once again. Telemundo News anchor Maria Celeste Arras, Salem talk radio host Hugh Hewitt and CNN chief political correspondent Dana Bash will join Blitzer in questioning the candidates.
