The Washington Post fact checker, although not unbiased, did a fair job at backing up the candidates statements from the South Carolina debate.
Among the top items:
- Christie denied supporting Sonia Sotomayor’s nomination to the Supreme Court: He did support her.
- Cruz claimed Trump’s own lawyers looked at the issue of Cruz’s birth and found no issue: Trump did tell ABC News “I hear it was checked out by every attorney and every which way, and I understand Ted is in fine shape.”
- Cruz said “We have the lowest percentage of Americans working today of any year since 1977.” Yup, essentially that’s right.
- Trump wondered where the 45 percent tariff on Chinese goods came from: Him, he said it.
