4th Democratic debate
The third Democratic debate in Houston brought the top ten candidates in the Democratic field onto the same stage for the first time and there was no shortage of lively discussion among the group. The top three candidates - Joe Biden, Elizabeth Warren, and Bernie Sanders - stuck largely to their typical script, with neither of them delivering any major blows, to the likely relief of Joe Biden. The remaining seven candidates received ample time to deliver their message and answer questions from the moderators, but none appeared to deliver a breakout performance that would shake the top of the field up.
Amy Klobuchar spoke with Jake Tapper on CNN's "State of the Union" where she reacted to Donald Trump's decision to cancel a secret Camp David meeting with the Taliban and the government of Afghanistan.

Klobuchar also talked about the scourge of mass shootings in the United States, saying she supports an assault weapons ban and a voluntary gun buyback program.
Amy Klobuchar spoke with Chuck Todd on Meet The Press about life on the campaign trail and why she believes that she's "stronger" than all the other candidates running.

Amy Klobuchar sat down with Lawrence O'Donnell on "The Last Word" to discuss her 2020 campaign and to express her dismay at Senator Mitch McConnell over his refusal to bring any gun legislation to the Senate floor in the wake of now weekly mass shootings throughout the country.

Amy Klobuchar sat down with Chris Wallace on 'Fox News Sunday' to discuss her Presidential campaign and why she thinks she is uniquely suited to win the Democratic nomination in 2020.

Night one of the second Democratic debate in Detroit featured two popular progressive candidates speaking the most, Bernie Sanders & Elizabeth Warren, engaging in debates with more moderate candidates on topics including health care, immigration reform & college education. Tim Ryan and John Delaney were the most outspoken in support of more moderate positions providing a contrast while Pete Buttigieg with the 3rd most speaking time focused his criticism on Republicans. Steve Bullock made his first appearance and also defended more moderate positions.
The first Democratic debate of the 2020 election cycle featured the first ten of twenty candidates who qualified to participate. There were plenty of minor disagreements between the candidates, particularly on immigration, healthcare policy, and Donald Trump.
