Debate Analysis

The Democrats' debate last night was a major opportunity for the candidates to reach out to voters across the state and make their cases before the party's September 19 Primary.

Over the last week, the rhetoric of the candidates has become more pointed and confrontational and last night was no exception.

Morning Edition host Bob Oakes talks with political analyst Dan Payne about which candidates faltered and which came out on top.
