Night two of the second Democratic debate in Detroit was a heated one between the 2020 hopefuls. The candidates focused more on attacking one another on issues such as healthcare and immigration than they did on how they would defeat Donald Trump. Kamala Harris was slammed by several candidates for her healthcare plan and her tenure as California's attorney general, but it was Joe Biden who received the majority of the blows by almost every candidate. His record was constantly called into question, as well as his position on the Hyde Amendment. Biden's responses were references to his time serving with Barack Obama.
