Democratic presidential hopefuls battle it out in third debate

Posted: Updated:

It was a showdown in Houston Thursday night as the Democratic presidential hopefuls battled it out in their third debate.

The 10 highest polling candidates faced off, and once again, all eyes were on front runner Joe Biden. Rivals took shots at the former vice president trying to chip away at his lead.

Biden and Sens. Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders shared one stage for the first time. Warren and Sanders both trying to win over the progressive vote.

But the third Democratic debate seemed to end in a 10-way tie. There were more attacks on President Donald Trump than on each other, with no clear winner.

A lot of people were waiting to see possible fireworks with the first matchup between Warren and Sanders, especially regarding health care, but no sparks materialized.
