Wow. We actually wanted another hour! Bloomberg was a prime target tonight because he entered the race late and essentially bought his way onstage. He was confronted about his controversial stop-and-frisk program in New York City, as well as his past sexist comments. A few of the most entertaining duels were: Warren vs. Bloomberg, Bernie vs. Bloomberg, and Amy vs. Pete.
The Nevada Caucus is this Saturday.
Interesting. Biden and Sanders had a chat after the debate. MSNBC is looking for audio, just like what came out after the CNN debate between Sanders and Warren.
Trump campaign statement on the debate: "The Democrat Party is in the midst of a full-scale meltdown. Americans are watching the party of JFK be torn apart by anti-job socialists and anti-worker globalists who want to control every aspect of Americans’ lives. This train wreck is nothing compared to what they would do to our country. None of these candidates will be able to go toe to toe with President Trump in November."

Mitch McConnell just won the debate.— Dana Perino (@DanaPerino) February 20, 2020
BIDEN: And Mitch McConnell, I've been the object of his affection and the president's affection the way he's gone after me, this new Republican Party after me, after my son, after my family. I don't need to be told I'm a friend to Mitch McConnell's. He's been the biggest pain in my neck in a long, long time.
