2020 Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg did a post debate interview on MSNBC's 'Morning Joe' about his performance in the 1st Democratic debate in front of a live audience. He also spoke about his vision for running the country, abolishing the electoral college and the recent police shooting in South Bend, Indiana where he is the current mayor.
Senator Kamala Harris sat down for an interview with the cast of Morning Joe the morning after a widely praised debate performance. In the interview, Senator Harris discussed her clash with Vice President Biden over busing and segregation during the debate, her policy proposals for the education system, and also sought to clarify her stance on private health insurance.
Night two of the first Democratic debate of the 2020 election cycle featured the second ten of twenty candidates who qualified to participate. The debate featured much more spirited discussion between the candidates than the first evening, with Vice President Biden, Senator Sanders, and Senator Harris engaging each other directly on a number of hot button issues like universal healthcare, racism, and immigration reform. One exchange in particular stood out when Senator Harris criticized Vice President Biden over his remarks praising former segregationist Southern Senators. Biden pushed back by saying Harris mischaracterized his words and insisted he did not praise racists.
