Twelve Democratic presidential candidates took to the stage in Ohio to tell the voters why they deserve to be the party’s nominee.
Seven others didn’t qualify for the debate, but are still running. Health care reform dominated the discussion, along with income inequality, gun control and the decision by U.S. President Trump to pull out troops from Syria.
Senator Elizabeth Warren – who is surging in the polls – was on the receiving end of most attacks.
To discuss all of this:
- Max Blumenthal is an author and journalist.
- Joel Rubin is a U.S. former deputy assistant secretary of state and president of the Washington Strategy Group.
- John Sitilides is a global risk analyst and U.S. government affairs consultant.
- Lincoln Mitchell is a political analyst and adjunct associate professor of Political Science at Columbia University.
The next Democratic debate will be held on November 20 in Georgia. Here's who has qualified so far:
