and we do say good morning to you, everyone. i'm kendis gibson. >> and i'm reena ninan. we begin with the latest gop showdown. the candidates clashing on hot-button issues like immigration while finding common ground against, of course, hillary clinton. >> and this time the debate playing out on the stage in milwaukee, wisconsin, it was heavy on substance. a lot of people were saying. and it focused on the economy primarily. it's "your voice your vote." and abc's erin kaersky begins our coverage. >> reporter: republicans have differed on style. this debate showed sharp differences on substance. particularly immigration. >> we know you can't pick them up and ship them across -- back across the border. >> i don't have to hear from this man. believe me. >> reporter: john kasich mocked donald trump's signature plan to remove 11 million undocumented immigrants. and jeb bush piled on. >> they're doing high fives in the clinton campaign right now when they hear this. >> reporter: bush tried to steady his campaign.
so did ben carson, after days of questions about his biography. >> people who know me know that i'm an honest person. >> reporter: as front-runners carson and trump were center stage, ted cruz tried to break through. >> there are more words in the irs code than there are in the bible. and not a one of them is as good. >> reporter: carly fiorina also tried to assert herself. >> ronald reagan didn't send troops -- >> ronald reagan walked away from reykjavik. he walked away. he quit talk -- >> reporter: drawing this rebuke from trump. >> why don't you keep interrupting everybody? >> reporter: overall, though, trump was more subdued here than he has been on the stump. when rivals attacked, he mainly held his fire. aaron katersky, abc news, milwaukee. >> and our coverage of the debate continues right now live in milwaukee with abc deputy political director shoshana walsh, joining us. >> morning to you, shush. let's get started with that clash over immigration, especially donald trump's plan to deport millions of people.
let's listen to that sound bite. >> frankly, we have to stop illegal immigration. it's hurting us economically. it's hurting us from every standpoint. it's causing tremendous difficulty with respect to drugs. >> but if people think that we are going to ship 11 million peopleho are law-abiding, who are in this country and somehow pick them up at their house and ship them out of mexico -- to mexico, think about the families. think about the children. >> this got a lot of people buzzing. >> this was a really interesting exchange. yeah, it was a really interesting exchange and an important one. why? because donald trump, he's been talking about this since the beginning of his campaign and he really does play to his base and to republican primary voters. but with jeb bush and john kasich, no, that will not play in a general election. >> and shush, we know that ben carson has faced some intense scrutiny over his questionable stories about a violent past and he was asked if he supports that sort of vetting of candidates.
take a look. >> the fact of the matter is, you know, what we -- we should vet all candidates. i have no problem with being vetted. what i do have a problem with is being lied about. and then putting that out there as truth. >> so we've seen a new ben carson on the stump. really more fired up now. you might compare him to other candidates like donald trump and others and say, well, that's not fired up. but for ben carson this is. but we're going to see this again and again. of course scrutiny will continue. he's a front-runner. there's going to be continued questions about his background. so we can expect what he said tonight, we can hear it on the campaign trail too. >> and shush, the buzz on social media, the number one moment for facebook users was really an intense exchange over defense spending. let's take a listen. >> i know that rand is a committed isolationist.. i'm not. i believe the world is a stronger and a better place when the united states is the strongest military power in the
world. >> marco. marco. how is it conservative -- how is it conservative to add a trillion-dollar expenditure for the federal government that you're not paying for -- >> are you talk about the military? >> you cannot be a conservative if you're going to keep promoting new programs that you're not going to pay for. >> let me respond. >> so we haven't really seen a moment like this from rand paul in previous debates. right? we've been talking about other candidates this whole time. but really, rand paul, this was a moment for him. whether people disagree with him or agree with him, it was not only the most facebooked moment of the debate, but men on facebook were talking the most about rand paul. >> teresting. rand paul getting some love there online. this was -- a lot of people saying this was a make or break debate for jeb bush. and the question many people are walking away with, did he help his campaign and were there any real winners or losers? >> so beforehand in every other debate i've come on and we've
talked about who won, who lost. but i really -- >> yeah. there are many people wondering who won and who lost and some people, some of the pundits i've heard have said they thought jeb bush did kind of help himself. >> sorry about that, kendis. but yeah. we've always been talking about who won, who lost, and really tonight it's almost status quo. we don't have another debate for another month, and i don't really see a lot of big losers out of tonight. jeb bush held his own as did the other candidates. >> eventually it's going to have to be narrowed down, though, shush. >> it was an interesting fourth debate. >> yes. we can't have this many people on the stage. that's for sure. >> abc's shushannah walshe joining us live from milwaukee. we appreciate your coverage tonight. and we do encourage you to look for more coverage of the republican debate in our next half hour. we'll take you back live to milwaukee again for more insight on all of this. our other developing story this morning, the investigation of a deadly jet crash in akron, ohio. the small plane crashed into a
