While most Americans are planning what — and how much — they will be eating at Thanksgiving on Thursday, eight Republican presidential candidates will take the debate stage in Washington tonight for a national security focused debate.

And we will be there! For those who haven’t participated in our live blogs before, think of it as watching the debate with your best (and most sarcastic) friends. You can follow the live blog below. We will get started around 7:30 p.m. — about a half-hour before the debate actually starts.

Come hang out. It will be more fun than watching a Hallmark Hall of Fame tear-jerker. We promise.
