The Republicans have had two combative presidential debates so far, and tonight the Democrats get their turn.
This evening Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders, Martin O’Malley, Lincoln Chafee, and Jim Webb square off in Las Vegas for the first Democratic debate of the season.
All eyes will be on the front-runners, Clinton and Sanders, who have been engaged in a surprisingly close fight. All summer Sanders has been drawing huge crowds, while Clinton has been trying to appeal to the base by moving further to the Left.
Former Maryland governor O’Malley hopes to finally make inroads with a national audience this evening, and Webb and Chafee will be introducing themselves to the country for the first time.
While the Dems are expected to put forth a more progressive platform than their GOP counterparts, it’ll be interesting to see how each candidate sets themselves apart from their opponents.
