That's all from us! Sen. Elizabeth Warren reminded Americans that Michael Bloomberg allegedly told an employee to "kill it" when she found out she was pregnant. Sen. Amy Klobuchar slammed Sen. Bernie Sanders for the high price tag of his Medicare for All plan and former Vice President Joe Biden somehow came up with the talking point that half the country died from "gun violence."

Let's see who comes out victorious in South Carolina on Saturday and in Super Tuesday states on Tuesday.

Just now in post debate interview Sanders leaning hard into his defense of Communist Dictators. He says that while he's been clear that Castro was a dictator, he and others got some good things done- not just literacy programs but other advances in education and providing efficient and affordable healthcare. He very clearly made the connection between socialist success and dictatorships. 

Analysts pushed on him much harder than any of the other candidates. This is disturbing stuff.

Klobuchar and Biden in post-debate interviews repeated their most boring talking points about the "boyfriend loophole" and the Brady Bill respectively. 

While plenty of feathers flew on stage, no one really took Sanders to task for ideas they have mostly characterized as radical and unelectable.

They may think he's unelectable but they're all happily yielding the nomination to him.

The RNC recap:

"The complete chaos we saw tonight shows that none of these Democrats deserve to be anywhere near the Oval Office," said Chairwoman McDaniel. "When we could hear over the crosstalk, we heard Democrats singing the same old song in support of socialism. Whether it’s tax hikes on every American, socialized medicine or open borders, their far-left policies are not resonating because voters know they will not work. On November 3rd, voters will overwhelmingly choose to continue this great American comeback and vote to re-elect President Trump."
