Q: Did Sen. Chuck Schumer say “it’s racist to only allow citizens to vote”?
A: No. A Facebook meme and viral stories continue to incorrectly quote the Senate Democratic leader.
In a spirited debate, Republican candidates variously strained the facts on President Obama’s record on trade, tangled with each other over a misleading ad about allowing felons to vote, and erred on the history of the federal income tax.
Otherwise, the five remaining GOP presidential candidates pretty much stuck to the facts as they debated Jan. 16 at the Myrtle Beach Convention Center in Myrtle Beach, S.C. The event was sponsored by Fox News and the Wall Street Journal.
