    The 7th Democratic Debate co-hosted by CNN and The Des Moines Register was held at Drake University in Des Moines, Iowa. Six candidates qualified for the debate in what was the smallest debate to date. The debate happened one day after Senator Warren accused Senator Sanders of privately telling her that a woman couldn't win the general election, an accusation Sanders vociferously denies. Another memorable element of the evening was Senator Klobuchar appearing to go on the attack against nearly everyone on the stage, especially the candidates she perceives as being too far left to win in a general election.
