U.S. Republican presidential candidates faced off at the last debate on Saturday evening, ahead of the New Hampshire primaries Tuesday. Billionaire Donald Trump and former Florida Governor Jeb Bush sparred over the governments' right to seize private lands for projects in the public good. Bush said Trump used it to build casino complexes in Atlantic City, by taking property from the elderly, and called it "downright wrong" -- but after the debate Trump fired back. (SOUNDBITE) (English) U.S. REPUBLICAN PRESIDENTIAL NOMINEE DONALD TRUMP, ON JEB BUSH, SAYING: "He wanted to show he's a tough guy and that was alright but he's not a tough guy." Florida Senator Marco Rubio struggled through the debate … which could breathe new life into the Bush campaign, as both men represent establishment Republicans. But polls show Trump in the lead, with Rubio in second and Texas Senator Ted Cruz in third place. A New Hampshire win for Trump would be his first victory of the 2016 race, erasing the pain from a loss in the Iowa caucus last week.
