But the debate will be remembered for Trump, whose dramatic spectacle came with the very first question, when the Fox News moderator, Bret Baier, asked if there was anyone unwilling to pledge support for the eventual Republican victor – and promise not to run as a third-party candidate.

For a moment, no one moved. Then Trump raised his hand, to gasps from the audience.
“You’re standing on a Republican primary debate stage,” Baier said, as the crowd erupted in boos and cheers. “Experts say an independent run would almost certainly hand the race over to Democrats and likely another Clinton?”
Trump was unapologetic, although his explanation was garbled.
“I have to respect the person that, if it’s not me, the person that wins – if I do win, and I’m leading by quite a bit, that’s what I want to do,” he said. “I can totally make that pledge. If I’m the nominee, I will pledge I will not run as an independent. I am discussing it with everybody, but I’m, you know, talking about a lot of leverage.”
The thrust of this appeared to be that the Republican frontrunner was prepared to stand as independent, a move that could scupper the party’s chances in 2016.
Minutes after the debate had finished, Reince Priebus, the chairman of the Republican National Committee, which runs the nomination process, was backstage trying to persuade reporters that Trump hadn’t really meant it.
“You can’t win an election against Hillary Clinton unless you’re running as a Republican,” he said. “Donald Trump gets that, so do we too, and I think all of this is going to work out just fine.”
