Colbert's Guide to Watching Tonight's GOP Debate

We are now a little less than a year away from the 2016 presidential election and as Stephen Colbert said on Monday's Late Show, "It's only 11 months until voters start paying attention."

Next, Colbert had fun talking about tonight's GOP debate. He started off with Sen.

And then, of course, he dug deep into the bizarre Ben Carson stories that have emerged.
