7 Democratic Candidates Debate in Los Angeles

HeadlineDec 20, 2019

Seven Democratic presidential candidates took the stage for a televised debate Thursday night at Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles. During the debate, the on-stage candidates — Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, Joe Biden, Pete Buttigieg, Amy Klobuchar, Tom Steyer and Andrew Yang — spoke about impeachment, money in politics, immigration, the economy, climate change, healthcare and education. Meanwhile, off stage, two prominent presidential candidates of color — Corey Booker and Julián Castro — ran ads on Thursday to remind voters they are still in the race. The Democratic National Committee has come under fierce criticism for its debate criteria, which excluded Booker and Castro from the debate stage Thursday. After headlines, we’ll spend the rest of the hour hosting a roundtable discussion about Thursday’s debate.
