the u-s-c school of law. and chad mills is there with a look ahead. this is actually part two of a town hall that started last night. the first part, in greenville, included senators marco rubio and ted cruz along with ben carson. tonight, donald trump, jeb bush, and governor john kasich will be in the spotlight. the three men have different viewpoints on some topics, and two of them -- bush and trump -- have been known to trade jabs so far during this election cycle. if it's anything like last night's town hall, the event tonight won't be a debate -- meaning the candidates won't be on stage all at once but will instead take turn answering questions from cnn's anderson cooper. last night, rubio, cruz, carson talked about a number of things. rubio and carson told the small audience they are prepared to be president. meanwhile, cruz said it was ridiculous that tump suggested president george w. bush didn't keep the country safe because 9/11 happened on his watch.

both rubio and trump that he's a liar. "you know i've got to say anderson, this is a strange election season, in many ways. both donald trump and marco rubio are following this pattern that whenever anyone points to their actual record, to what they've said, to what they've voted on, to what they've done, they start screaming 'liar! liar! liar!' it is the oddest thing. i can't think of any precedent in any previous republican presidential election. now from my end, i have not and will not respond in kind. if they want to engage in personal insults, if they want to go to the mud, i'm not going to say the same thing about them. i think the people of south carolina deserve more than people that throwing mud at each other." / "and i'm going to continue focusing on issues and record that just yelling insults and liar is not a response when you want to run away from your record." it'll be interesting to see if trump focuses any attacks on senator rubio tonight,
