Republican presidential candidates held their final debate last night in Sioux City just weeks before the Iowa caucus takes place on January 3. In the Fox News debate candidates attempted to draw distinctions from one another and defend their record to conservative voters. The latest New York Times/CBS News poll shows Newt Gingrich gaining ground on consistent front runner Mitt Romney. But some voters are still undecided.

Anna Sale, reporter for Takeaway co-producer WNYC's political Web site It's A Free Country, and Ron Christie, Republican political strategist and political contributor for the Takeaway and It's A Free Country, look at the winners and losers of last night's debate.
