Democratic presidential hopefuls have kicked off the second round of debates, this time hosted by CNN in Detroit, Michigan. The first 10 candidates on Tuesday showcased differing views on proposals to eliminate private health insurance, reshape the US economy and confront powerful American corporations.
Qualification rules remain the same as the first debates, but Californian congressman Eric Swalwell has dropped out of the race and Montana Governor Steve Bullock has now qualified. That means the debate stage is still crowded, with 10 candidates on camera per night. All eyes will be on another showdown between Senator Kamala Harris and former Vice President Joe Biden on night two.
