For their third debate the Republican candidates for the presidential nomination took the stage at the University of Colorado on Wednesday night for an event hosted by CNBC. Though the focus of the conversation was intended to be on business and details of their economic policies, the evening quickly devolved into a mess of accusations between candidates and moderators Carl Quintanilla, Becky Quick and John Harwood and a near complete oversight of debate structure.

Candidates Carly Fiorina, Donald Trump, Jeb Bush, Ben Carson, Ted Cruz, John Kasich, Marco Rubio, Chris Christie , Mike Huckabee and Rand Paul took part in the event, once again after an earlier debate known as the "kids table" featuring Rick Santorum, Lindsey Graham, Bobby Jindal and George Petaki.

Check out the highlights from the main debate:

Bush said that Trump would be a better president "every week and twice on Sunday, rather than Hillary," and Fiorina even declared herself "Hillary Clinton's worst nightmare" as she vowed to beat Clinton in a head-to-head debate.
