Tulsi Gabbard sat down in the spin room with Chris Matthews and his panel to discuss her performance at the 5th Democratic debate. Gabbard was pressed on her positions, especially concerning her meeting with Syrian dictator Bashar Al-Assad. Panelist Steve Schmidt pressed Gabbard over the meeting, saying “I thought your performance was dishonest. I think your positions are extreme, and one question I would have for you is why did you go to Syria to meet Bashar Al Assad?”
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.
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.
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.
Hawaii Representative, Tulsi Gabbard sat down with CNN's Anderson Cooper, following the second night of the second Democratic debate. In the interview, she talked about about her thoughts on the outcome of the second night, as well as her verbal sparing match with Kamala Harris over her tenure as California's attorney general.
The first Democratic debate of the 2020 election cycle featured the first ten of twenty candidates who qualified to participate. There were plenty of minor disagreements between the candidates, particularly on immigration, healthcare policy, and Donald Trump. Some notable moments are when Senator Warren publicly called for the elimination of private health insurance (a first for her), Julian Castro's passionate plea for a more inclusive immigration law, and a number of candidates answering questions in Spanish instead of English in a bid to appeal to Hispanic voters.
