Republican presidential candidates (L-R) former Utah Governor Jon Huntsman, Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN), Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX), businessman Herman Cain, former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney, former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich (R-GA), Texas Governor Rick Perry, and former Sen. Rick Santorum (R-PA) get ready prior to a presidential debate at Wofford College Nov. 12, 2011, in Spartanburg, South Carolina. The debate was focused on national security and foreign policy.

The super committee has just 10 days left to make a deal. Co-chairman of the committee, Rep. Jeb Hensarling, says a two-step process will have the committee agree to an overall tax revenue number, with other congressmen to come up with the actual taxes. Also, the Republican candidates debate foreign policy over the weekend.
