    Twelve Democratic presidential hopefuls will descend on Otterbein University on Tuesday for the fourth primary debate, including current frontrunners, Sen. Elizabeth Warren and former Vice President Joe Biden.

    The debates will also mark Sen. Bernie Sanders’ return to the campaign trail after he suffered a heart attack earlier this month, at a time when he appears to have lost some momentum in the polls.

    The other attendants are Democratic presidential candidates Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, billionaire Tom Steyer, Sen. Cory Booker, Sen. Kamala Harris, South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg, former tech executive Andrew Yang, former Texas congressman Beto O'Rourke, Sen. Amy Klobuchar and former housing secretary Julian Castro. The event is co-hosted by CNN and The New York Times.

    The debates will mark Warren’s first time on stage as a frontrunner after overtaking Biden in national polls as well as in some surveys in states like Iowa and New Hampshire. Biden’s standing among voters has declined ever since US President Trump claimed the former vice president thwarted a Ukrainian prosecutor’s investigation into an energy company that employed Biden’s son Hunter as a board member.

    The forum is also the first debate to take place since House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced a formal impeachment inquiry into Trump, which will likely force the contenders to address the issue on stage.

      Sanders to Biden: "You Got the Disastrous War in Iraq Done"

      When asked about his opinion on Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren and if they would be able to attract voters Democrats need, former Vice President Joe Biden said "we can't be running any vague campaigns". Adding "I'm the only one on this stage that has gotten anything really big done".

      Sanders responded to it by criticizing Biden's foreign and domestic policy.

      "In two ways. Joe, you talked about working with Republicans and getting things done. But you know what you also got done, and I say this as a good friend. You got the disastrous war in Iraq done. You got a bankruptcy bill which is hurting middle-class families all over this country," Sanders said.

      "If someone does not turn in an AR-15 or AK-47, one of these weapons of war or brings it out in public and brandishes it in an attempt to intimidate ... then that weapon will be taken from them," O'Rourke said and was immediately confronted by Mayor Pete Buttigieg: "You just made it clear that you don't know how this is actually going to take weapons off the streets," Buttigieg said.

      Tulsi Gabbard Calls for an End to Regime-Change War in Syria

      Hawaii Rep. Tulsi Gabbard supported US troops withdrawal from Syria and was confronted by Pete Buttigieg, who said that "The slaughter going on in Syria is not a consequence of American presence".

      Gabbard immediately responded: "So really, what you're saying, mayor Pete, is that you would continue to support having US Troops in Syria for an indefinite period of time, to continue this regime-change war that has caused so many refugees to flee Syria, that you would continue to have our country involved in a war that has undermined our national security, you would continue this policy of the US actually providing arms in support to terrorist groups in Syria, because they are the ones who have been the ground force in this regime-change war."

      Bernie Sanders on Medicare-For-All: "Taxes Will Go Up"

      "The overwhelming majority of people will save money on their health care bills. I do think it is appropriate to acknowledge that taxes will go up. They will go up significantly for the wealthy and for virtually everybody, the tax increase will be substantially less," the senator said. Meanwhile, Elizabeth Warren dodged question on her Medicare for All Plan. "It is about what kinds of costs middle-class families are going to face," she said, adding that costs will go up for wealthy and down for middle-class.
