Murphy: Second-tier candidates could make a push

WASHINGTON (CNN) - CNN's Pipeline is roaring to life as political analysts Michael Murphy and Arianna Huffington pick apart the GOP candidates' responses at Tuesday's presidential debate.

Murphy, a veteran Republican strategist, says it is important to look out for the lesser-known candidates.

"There's going to be a lot of jostling out there tonight, not only from the big names," he said.

One notable candidate is Rep. Duncan Hunter of California.

"Hunter is an old Congressional pro and speaks the lingo well on the military," Murphy said.

Huffington vs. Murphy, Round 2

WASHINGTON (CNN) - Political strategists Arianna Huffington and Michael Murphy are at it again.

Reprising their role from Sunday night's Democratic debate, the two are butting heads and giving expert analysis all night long. According to Huffington, Murphy is the man to talk to.

"He's worked for McCain, Romney and Thompson - this is the man to listen to," she said.

"Plus I used to intern for Duncan Hunter," added Murphy.
