LAS VEGAS, Oct. 13 (UPI) -- Five Democratic presidential hopefuls will take the stage Tuesday night in Las Vegas in the first debate of their 2016 election campaign.
Front-runner Hillary Clinton will take center stage, flanked by Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, former Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley, former Virginia Sen. Jim Webb and former Rhode Island Gov. Lincoln Chafee, in the two-hour live debate that will likely focus on policy and political records. At the same time, the Democrats need to show they can bring as much enthusiasm and excitement to the table as the Republicans have in their last two debates.
