Detroit, MI -  

It’s a showdown of the Democratic presidential primary field’s top progressives Tuesday night as Sens. Bernie Sanders of Vermont and Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts headline the first night of this week’s debate in Detroit, which is being televised by CNN.  Ten Democratic presidential candidates took the stage in Detroit on Tuesday night for a debate that revealed the party’s fault lines on issues ranging from healthcare to immigration to foreign policy. The format is similar to last month’s opening debate, featuring 10 Democrats on stage per night. The other candidates appearing on stage Tuesday are Montana Gov. Steve Bullock; South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg, former Maryland Rep. John Delaney; former Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper; Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar; former Texas Rep. Beto O’Rourke, Ohio Rep. Tim Ryan and spiritual self-help author Marianne Williamson.
