Bracket | Most Memorable GOP Debate Moments (Final Four)

Monday, March 26, 2012

Only four debate moments remain, and today they battle it out for a spot in tomorrow's championship match-up.

"Oops" won the Gaffes division and now faces the Newt v. John King smackdown, which was the best of the Dust-Ups.

On the other side of the bracket, "9-9-9" won the Policy Jingles division and the booing of a gay soldier took Audience Participation.

It's all #1-seeds left, folks. The winners of these two match-ups will face each other on Tuesday, when one will be chosen as the most memorable debate moment of the 2012 nominating season.
