5 Topics for Democratic Debate No. 2
Gabriella Schwarz / November 13, 2015
The Democratic presidential candidates will step into the debate limelight on Saturday. The three remaining candidates on the left side of the aisle, Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders and former Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley, will meet in Iowa, the first-in-the nation caucus state. Clinton enters the night as the clear frontrunner in national and statewide polling. She has spent a great deal of time and effort in the Hawkeye State after her defeat there to Barack Obama in the 2008 caucuses.
“The goal of the moderator is to illuminate the views of the candidates on the issues that matter the most to voters, and you don’t need to be on the side of the party to do that,” Dickerson told the Des Moines Register.
