HUGH HEWITT (DEBATE MODERATOR): Mr. Trump, my listeners tell me again and again they're worried that Hillary Clinton will win the White House because you run as an independent. Are you ready to reassure Republicans tonight that you will run as a Republican and abide by the decision of the Republicans?

DONALD TRUMP: I really am. I'll be honest, I really am. I mean, people have been putting me in a crunch. I really am. 

HEWITT: I can applaud.
