What to expect from night 2 of 2nd debates

After Sens. Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren fended off repeated attacks from moderate competitors, the next 10 presidential primary contenders take the stage Wednesday for second night of the second Democratic debates.

During the first night, polling front-runner and former Vice President Joe Biden's name was not mentioned once, but now he'll share the stage with Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., flanked by the all the candidates of color running in the presidential primary, after a random live drawing split the 20 qualifying contenders between the two nights.

Airing on CNN at 8 p.m. ET, Wednesday night's debate is expected to be more contentious than Tuesday's, picking up where the first debates in Miami left off: When Biden was relegated to playing defense after a game-changing moment for Harris and other lesser-known candidates saw spikes in fundraising and polling following much-needed breakout performances.

For the last few weeks, campaign aides and surrogates have been sparring over policy in back-and-forth statements, cable TV appearances, and on social media, but now the candidates will have the chance to speak for themselves on their differences and present their visions for the country.

The second ten candidates who are set to square off on Wednesday are:

Colorado Sen. Michael Bennet

New York Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand

Former HUD Secretary Julián Castro

New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker

Former Vice President Joe Biden

California Sen. Kamala Harris

Andrew Yang

Hawaii Rep. Tulsi Gabbard

Washington Gov. Jay Inslee

New York Mayor Bill de Blasio

1. I think after tonight the field will thin out a bit.

 

It takes a lot of money to run a national campaign. Once the polls come out after these debates we will see who can afford to stay in this fray and who needs to walk away.

3. Disagree...I takes a lot of money to run a SUCCESSFUL campaign...

 

If you want to drive around with a staffer to make speeches and stay at Motel 6, you can continue on marginal funds.

2. I think it will be a more interesting debate than last night's.

 

Too bad Gabbard, Yang and De Blasio, who have no chance whatsoever at the nomination, are still hanging around, taking up space and air time.

5. His ideas might be interesting but he has no chance at being nominated

 

and therefore his ideas are not useful or important in that forum.
