Republican presidential candidates, from right, Ohio Gov. John Kasich, former Florida governor Jeb Bush and Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., participate Jan. 28 in a GOP debate in Des Moines, Iowa.

New Hampshire Republican Debate: 3 Things To Watch Saturday Night

When seven of the nine remaining Republican candidates meet Saturday for their final debate before the New Hampshire primary on Tuesday, several of them will be facing their last chance to stay in the race.

Sales for the Keurig, an individual coffee brewer, are down about $60 million from last year.

After Introducing Changes, Keurig Sales Continue To Fall

"That's it, that's it!" cries another, gesturing toward a swelling wave that's gathering speed as it heads toward a surfer about 25 yards offshore. When he lets the wave pass him by, bobbing over its crest on a scuffed board, the group laughs. "Look at him, he's scared."

Ted Cruz, winner of the Iowa caucuses, said at the debate in Des Moines that the health law has been "a disaster," adding it's "the biggest job-killer in our country."

States Not Waiting To Close Gender Wage Gap

Emily Martin created a state-by-state map of the gender wage gap in the United States. She calculated: Washington, D.C., has the smallest wage gap where women average nearly 90 cents to a man's dollar; Louisiana has the largest gap — women there earn just 65 percent of what men do.

Nationally, women earn an average 79 cents for every dollar men do. The gender wage gap is even wider for black and Hispanic women.
