A chase to progress
Seven candidates are facing off in the sixth televised Democratic debate at Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles, California, co-hosted by PBS and Politico. The debate questions turned to women leaders and age after a break.
The moderators are PBS NewsHour anchor and managing editor Judy Woodruff, Politico chief political correspondent Tim Alberta, PBS NewsHour senior national correspondent Amna Nawaz, and PBS NewsHour White House correspondent Yamiche Alcindor.
Andrew Yang delivers on universal income, China’s 5g and surveillance threat. Climate change approaches by Yang and Warren contrast regarding nuclear energy.
Warren made the right choice in a red blazer outfit.
Amy K. Looked presidential and forgot her third point just like Veep did in that one episode, the crowd still loved her.
Pete kept to himself and was less controversial, probably scoping the audience’s reaction for lucrative ideas posed by Yang in regards to the autonomy and systematic odds against the equal representation of minorities on the Loyola Marymount stage and other parts of the industries.
Businessman Andrew Yang: “It’s both an honor and disappointment to be the lone candidate of color on the stage tonight. I miss Kamala [Harris], I miss Cory [Booker], though I think Cory will be back.”#DemDebate https://t.co/bLJfnejEdJ pic.twitter.com/DH1SC9xNQW

Warren spoke up about the corruption of money in politics.
Biden gives concrete examples of policy changes he would make but many argue his association with Obama would jeopardize his chances against the red wave in 2020.
Warren came down hard on Pete’s high dollar private Hollywood fundraiser and criticized the lack of transparency.
Pete lashed back at Warren when he spoke about the money from anyone willing to beat Donald Trump and stressed purity tests erode campaign messaging.
Pete also took on student debt.
My plan would make sure cost is not an issue for 90% of students.

Senator Amy stole the thunder when she interrupted by highlighting the actual time spent to propose new ideas against big money.
Senator Sanders addresses Palestine and Israel.
“Israel has the right not only to exist, but to exist in peace and security,” Bernie Sanders said at the #DemDebate. “But what U.S. foreign policy must be about is not just being pro-Israel. We must be pro-Palestinian as well.” https://t.co/2I0App7Y1z pic.twitter.com/kITkqhhMrz

Contrasting point of view scattered Twitter.
It was definitely the reason why he got elected, racial and cultural resentment that directly resulted from the loss of jobs actually stemming from automation, you pose a strawman, man. https://t.co/88yIoupTWT
