In this special edition of the Politically Georgia podcast, hosts Greg Bluestein, Patricia Murphy, Bill Nigut and Tia Mitchell look at the performances by the eight GOP presidential candidates who debated Wednesday at Fiserv Forum in Milwaukee.

But the elephant missing from the room was former President Donald Trump who skipped the debate for an interview with Tucker Carlson. Does that make him the loser of the first Republican primary debate, as Gov. Brian Kemp suggests?
