Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush faces a pivotal moment in his presidential campaign on Wednesday when he goes into a prime-time debate needing to make a mark in a Republican race dominated by Donald Trump.

The second GOP presidential debate is giving a prime-time stage to long shots trying to prove they’re worthy of attention and to weakened veterans fighting to reassert their viability — all still struggling against the campaign’s phenomenon, Donald Trump.
