During the first Republican debate in North Charleston, S.C. on Thursday, candidates Carly Fiorina, Rick Santorum (R-Penn.), and Mike Huckabee (R-Ark.) tackled issues including the economy, gun control, and homeland security.

According to Google Trends, the most-searched candidate during the so-called “undercard” debate was Ms. Fiorina, who had been bumped down from the primetime debate this week.

Unlike Fiorina, Kentucky senator Rand Paul, who had been on the main stage for the first five debates, declined the invitation to participate.

"I won't participate in anything that's not first tier because we have a first-tier campaign," said Paul.
