Red vs. Blue
COLUMBIA, South Carolina (CNN) -- Although Tuesday night's Republican debate is being held in a very red state, when it comes to the candidates' neckties, it's deadlocked.
Five candidates -- Rudy Giuliani, John Gilmore, Tom Tancredo, Duncan Hunter, and Tommy Thompson -- are wearing ties that are mostly red. The other five presidential hopefuls -- John McCain, Mitt Romney, Mike Huckabee, Ron Paul, and Sam Brownback -- are wearing ties that are mostly blue.
All of the candidates are wearing dark suits.
-- CNN Deputy Political Director Paul Steinhauser
