CNN Republican Reagan Library Debate preview

Published: Updated:

SIMI VALLEY, Cali.- The CNN Republican Reagan Library Debate is just one day away. What does it take to put on a massive debate with 11 candidates? CNN’s Ryan Nobles went behind the scenes at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library.

Millions of people are expected to tune in to the debate although only about 500 people will actually get to be inside the debate hall as it happens.

Each candidate gets their own dressing room to prepare for the event. An impressive RV setup gives candidates easy access to the debate stage which is right up the driveway.

The CNN debate spin room will host the candidates’ surrogates after the debate. There they will talk to the various TV networks and press assembled about which parts of the debate they think their particular candidate did well in. Wednesday night after the debate, the room will be packed with hundreds of people trying to get their candidates’ messages out.
