Leading Presidential Candidates Square Off in Third Democratic Debate

The 10 leading Democratic presidential candidates appeared for the first time on the same stage Thursday night at a debate at Texas Southern University in Houston.

It was the third Democratic debate of the primary season, but it marked the first time former Vice President Joe Biden and Senator Elizabeth Warren took part in the same debate.

Biden repeatedly faced criticism for his healthcare plans and for his vote to support the war in Iraq; Senator Bernie Sanders defended his vision of democratic socialism; Elizabeth Warren called for the withdrawal of troops in Afghanistan; and more.
