SPARTANBURG, S.C. — Several Republican presidential hopefuls say they would continue to hold terror suspects at the military prison at Guantanamo Bay..

In Saturday night's debate, businessman Herman Cain, former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum and Minnesota's Rep. Michele Bachmann all say they want to keep the prison open, allow the use of controversial techniques to interrogate terrorists and use military courts to try the terrorism suspects who are held there.

Gov. Rick Perry didn't address Guantanamo directly, but he says the U.S. should continue to use enhanced interrogation techniques to save American lives overseas.

President Barack Obama has been trying to close the prison since the early months of his presidency.

The Republican candidates GOP hopefuls were answering a question from South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham, who was attending the debate.
