CNN Democratic Debate on 1/14, What to Watch For

The six remaining candidates will face off in Iowa on Tuesday.

Only six candidates made the cut to participate in this debate. This is an important time for the candidates as it is the last debate before the Iowa Caucus on February 3.

What We Know:

  • Former Vice President Joe Biden, U.S. Sen. Amy Klobuchar, U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders, U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren, Former South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg, and Tom Steyer will face off for the seventh Democratic debate in Iowa.
