Democratic debate: Watch live as Democrats face off at ABC debate in New Hampshire

Posted at 1:44 PM, Feb 07, 2020

Iowa's final results from the first contest of the presidential cycle remain unclear, despite reaching 100% of precincts reporting late Thursday, but since the returns started slowly trickling in, the ground of the 2020 race has shifted, with the Democrats more openly and aggressively drawing contrasts between each other over their competing visions for the country.

Now, they will bring the disputes they’ve been battling out on the campaign trail to the debate stage. Watch in the player embedded below.

The matchup, hosted by ABC News, WMUR-TV, and Apple News, comes only four days after the Iowa caucuses and less than a week before Granite State voters head to the polls on Tuesday -- marking one of their last opportunities to pitch a decisive electorate on why they should be the nominee in July.

Here is the podium order for the qualifying candidates, from left to right as viewed by the audience:

  • Entrepreneur Andrew Yang
  • Former South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg
  • Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders
  • Former Vice President Joe Biden
  • Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren
  • Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar
  • Businessman Tom Steyer
