    The 9th Democratic Debate was held at the Paris Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada. NBC News and MSNBC hosted the debate along with The Nevada Independent. It was the smallest debate stage in the 2020 election cycle and the first debate former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg participated in. His Democratic rivals wasted no time harshly criticizing his record on a number of issues and questioning his motives for entering the race. Bloomberg appeared caught off guard at some moments, but forcefully pushed back at others. Another memorable moment is when Sen. Klobuchar and Pete Buttigieg had an impassioned debate over courting minority voters.

    The 8th Democratic debate co-hosted by ABC and television station WMUR was held at St Anselm College, outside of Manchester, NH. The candidates surprisingly struck a less hostile tone than prior debates and there were even some moments of levity when Bernie Sanders was asked about a criticism by Hillary Clinton about his likability in the Senate, hoping to get some moments of disagreement, but instead Joe Biden talked about his admiration for Sanders and gave him a hug. Not all moments were light though, with multiple candidates questioning Pete Buttigieg about his inability to break through with non-white voters and Biden sharply criticizing Sanders over gun control.
