The final four remaining Republican presidential candidates met Thursday night in what could be the last debate before the field narrows after next week’s primaries.

Compared to the raucous debate a week ago, Thursday's affair was low-key and remained mostly focused on a range of issues, from the economy to ISIS, Middle East peace and the complicated delegate math in the GOP contest. But for Donald Trump, Ted Cruz, John Kasich and Marco Rubio, the stakes are high in next Tuesday's contests in five states with 350 delegates at stake.
