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:
