Live-Blogging the GOP Presidential Debate

Expect more "piñata" time for Texas Gov. Rick Perry tonight, as he and former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney battle for frontrunner status at another Republican presidential debate in Orlando, Fla.

Nine candidates--including former New Mexico Gov. Gary Johnson, who is making his debate debut--will take questions from the moderators as well as from members of the public via YouTube. The event is co-hosted by Fox News and Google.

Join me, Chris Suellentrop, deputy editor of Yahoo! News blogs, and Chris Moody, political reporter for The Ticket reporting live tonight from Orlando, below as we live-blog tonight's debate. The event kicks off at 9 p.m. ET. Watch the debate live stream here at FoxNews.com.
