Whether you’re a vested Republican, an undecided voter, or simply want to see what Trump will say next, interest in tonight’s GOP Debate spreads to all ages and parties. The second round of debates comes after a record breaking 24 million viewers tuned to watch the first debate in August, making it the highest rated primary debate in television history. But what if you don’t have cable and can’t watch the showdown live?
We set out to find where the cord-cutting many (or the political enthusiasts alike) can go to watch the GOP Debate in Sacramento. Most of the places we talked to said they would turn on the debate if requested, but there’s no guarantee it will be playing (nor that there will be sound). The following pubs, restaurants, and locations, however, are confirmed spots to sit back and watch the show with friends, food, and drinks.
