10th Democratic Debate
The 10th Democratic Debate will be held at the Gaillard Center in Charleston, South Carolina. CBS News is hosting the debate along with the Congressional Black Caucus Institute. It is being held days after the Nevada caucuses and days before the South Carolina Democratic primary.
8th Democratic Debate
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.
7th Democratic Debate
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.
6th Democratic Debate
The 6th Democratic debate co-hosted by PBS NewsHour and Politico will be held at Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles. The seven candidates who qualified will share the same stage for a single-night of debate. It begins at 8:00PM Eastern and is slated to end at 10:30PM. This will be the last debate of 2019.
5th Democratic Debate
The Fifth Democratic Debate will be hosted by MSNBC and The Washington Post at Tyler Perry Studios in Atlanta, Georgia. Ten candidates qualified for the debate - Cory Booker, Tulsi Gabbard, Amy Klobuchar, Pete Buttigieg, Elizabeth Warren, Joe Biden, Bernie Sanders, Kamala Harris, Andrew Yang, and Tom Steyer.
4th Democratic Debate
The fourth Democratic debate at Otterbein University in Westerville, Ohio, just outside of Columbus, featured twelve candidates all sharing the same stage. Most observers paid close attention to how Senator Elizabeth Warren performance now that she is leading in many national polls and she had a fairly strong night. Eyes were also on Bernie Sanders, who is returning to the race after suffering a heart attack on October 1. He had a strong performance and is, at least for now, seeming to move on from his health emergency. Joe Biden had a relatively strong night without any major gaffes, but without any major memorable moment either.
Tom Steyer The View Interview
Tom Steyer sat down with the ladies of "The View" on ABC days after announcing that he was entering the race to be the Democratic nominee for President in 2020. The hosts pushed him to explain why he feels that he is the right person to take on Donald Trump and he responded that he's in the race because he is tired of having a "government that can’t get anything done" and he thinks he's the right person to start getting things done again.
