Some of you already know who you are voting for. Some of you are waiting until the debates start in August to see what the candidates stances are. Only the top 10 candidates (selected from 5 national polls) will be invited to participate in the August 6th debate. Hopefully then there will be some clarity within the Republican party.
One thing is for sure, America needs a strong and moral leader!
