  • Sanders faces attacks in Democrats’ debate-stage clash

Bernie Sanders, now the undisputed front-runner in the race to challenge Donald Trump for the White House, takes the middle podium in tonight's televised debate in SC, there might as well be a bull's-eye painted on the floor.

Former Vice President Joe Biden's campaign is now walking back repeated claims that he was arrested in South Africa years ago, clarifying Tuesday that he was not arrested and instead "was separated from his party at the airport".

Tim O'Brien, a senior adviser for former New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg's presidential campaign, ripped Sen.

Biden slammed Sanders for his record on gun control, seizing on the Vermont senator's supportof the 2005 Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act, legislation that protects gun manufacturers and sellers from laws that attempt to hold them liable for dealing firearms that end up in the hand of criminals.

The candidates acknowledged the sharp jabs they threw at each other hours earlier - when they repeatedly attacked front-runner Bernie Sanders as a risky choice to lead the party in November - but pledged to eventually unify behind one candidate.

The new wave of infighting came as Democrats were set to meet for the party's 10th - and perhaps most consequential - debate of the 2020 primary season.

Bloomberg, 78, seeks to rebound from a disastrous performance in his first debate and prove he is a credible, moderate alternative to the leftist Sanders.

Buttigieg was clearly gunning for Sanders, suggesting at one point that as Trump yearned for the "social order of the 1950s", Sanders wanted a return to the "revolutionary politics of the 1960s".

One candidate who has not yet taken Sanders on directly is Elizabeth Warren.

In truth, he's not alone - with Bernie Sanders on the march, neither Amy Klobuchar nor Elizabeth Warren can afford to leave SC without a strong showing in Saturday's Democratic primary, the last before 1,357 delegates go up for grabs a week from today on Super Tuesday.

MA is experiencing ‘historically high’ levels of the flu
That will not prevent a single infection today, or save a single life today", said World Health Organization director general Dr. Yocum, who is not only a family doctor, but the City of Lebanon's Health Officer and the longtime Lebanon County Coroner.

Sanders said he expected the attacks. But he still seemed to be adjusting to his new status.

"It is a little amusing to find myself as the so-called front-runner", he said.

Biden doubled down on gun control issues in this SC debate, touting his work with the 1994 crime bill as well as the Brady Law, which imposes a waiting period before a licensed person can sell a handgun to an unlicensed person.

Having finished on top in three consecutive primary contests - including a tie in Iowa - Sanders is eyeing a knockout blow, however.

In the 2020 presidential campaign, Sanders has all the elements necessary to be the Democratic nominee: he has raised the most money, he has the name recognition, he has a hardcore base of support, and he has had a lot of luck. "I just like him; he's a likeable guy", Breaker said. You got arrested trying to see me'.

Sanders will also have to fend off one of the most persistent narratives of his candidacy: that his lack of experience and reputation as a political extremist will make it hard, if not impossible, to win a general election.

Heading into the debate, there was no sign that any of those candidates was close to getting out.

Amy Klobuchar and billionaire ex-hedge funder Tom Steyer, who didn't qualify for the Nevada debate.

Meanwhile, Sanders' critics in both parties unleashed a flood of new attacks focused largely on his long record in elected office and unique perspective on some controversial issues.
