Democratic Debate Takes Off in Atlanta

The much-anticipated Democratic Debate will take off in Atlanta where the frontrunners will try to create space in the polls.

The October debate was less than eventful as no important questions were even asked by hosts CNN or the New York Times. With a shakeup in candidates on stage after the end of the run for Rep. Beto O'rourke and former HUD Sec. Julián Castro failing to qualify, it allows for a more interesting debate.

The debate will be held Wednesday November 20th at 9 p.m. eastern. It will be hosted by both MSNBC and the Washington Post. This month’s debate will have fewer candidates on stage allowing for the others to have more speaking time.

The candidates who qualified for the debate are Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren,

Entrepreneur Andrew Yang, Billionaire executive Tom Steyer, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar, California Sen. Kamala Harris, South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg, New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker, Former Vice President Joe Biden, and the always interesting Hawaii Rep. Tulsi Gabbard.

With it still being a 3-person race according to the polling numbers, those behind will likely take jabs at the frontrunners in order to reel in some of their supporters. Mayor Pete Buttigieg did this brilliantly when he attacked Sen. Elizabeth Warren on her healthcare plan as he is now improving his polling numbers in the early voting states.

While she has shot down the rumors of a third-party run, Rep. Tulsi Gabbard is one to keep an eye on as she always has a wonderful showing in the debates. The media and the DNC are rooting against her, but that will not stop her fighting until the very end.

Many hope for answers on policies that they have questions about as the last debate lacked in this area. It was more of attacking President Trump and promising free stuff that could not be given out, even with the insanely high tax rate to the upper class and working class that would likely result.

It should be a good showing by many candidates, so be sure to watch it on MSNBC or
