The first night of the Democratic debate has arrived and we’ve scoured Twitter to find you the headlines you can’t afford to miss.
Will Elizabeth Warren maintain her double-digit status? Can Joe Biden overcome the generational issues and missteps he’s come to be know on the campaign trail thus far? Will Rachel Maddow prevail as top moderator considering there’s a Chuck Todd type (it’s actually him) in the room? All of this and more remains to be seen – but first:
These are moderators for the #DemDebate:

Trump may ‘fatally wound’ his reelection by snubbing North Carolina: CNN analyst
President Donald Trump risks alienating voters in the key swing state of North Carolina if he moves his RNC convention speech to another state, political analyst James C. Moore explained for CNN.
"Of all the institutions the Trump presidency is harming, it's likely no one suspected the Republican National Convention might be one of them. But President Donald Trump's refusal to fully acknowledge the risks associated with the pandemic is creating a new political threat to his own candidacy," he wrote. "The Republican National Convention was slated to take place in Charlotte, North Carolina, in August. But the pandemic struck, and the governor has insisted on a scaled down event with safety precautions that include social distancing and face masks. The President, who wants his huddled masses shoulder to shoulder as they shout their acclimations, is now looking to deliver his convention speech in another city."
Online database has 426 videos of police attacking George Floyd protestors
The nationwide protests against police violence have created numerous instances of police violence. As hundreds of thousands have non-violently protested without incident, they’re capturing police attacks against demonstrators on camera, and now there’s a database where you can watch them all.
Lawyer T. Greg Doucette and mathematician Jason Miller have placed these clips into a public Google Sheet entitled “GeorgeFloyd Protest – police brutality videos on Twitter.” It contains links to at least 426 videos of police violence committed in cities across the United States.
Trump can still win re-election in the midst of the disaster he helped create: David Cay Johnston
With a pandemic, economic crash, and racial protests rocking America and poll after poll showing him down in key states, conventional wisdom is starting to shift in favor of President Donald Trump being an underdog to win re-election.
But not so fast, wrote Pulitzer Prize-winning financial journalist David Cay Johnston for The Daily Mail. According to him, Trump still has a blueprint to follow that could let him win another term.
