Live Updates Ahead of Tonight’s Democratic Debate in South Carolina
The Democratic presidential debate, hosted by CBS News and the Congressional Black Caucus Institute, is 8 p.m. to 10:15 p.m. Eastern time.
The South Carolina primary, where 54 delegates are at stake, is on Saturday.
Last week’s debate in Las Vegas was the fiercest yet as candidates took more personal swipes at one another. With the addition of Michael R. Bloomberg, that debate set a TV ratings record.
Seven Democratic candidates qualified for the debate on Tuesday: former Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr.; Mr. Bloomberg, the former mayor of New York City; former Mayor Pete Buttigieg of South Bend, Ind.; Senator Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota; Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont; Tom Steyer, a billionaire businessman; and Senator Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts.

Who now knows he cannot Win.
Makes a move to plug the number two spot.
so thats an interestingly timed development as far as sanders cuba comments go in relations to the debate being today.
HAVANA (Reuters) - Cuba’s cash-strapped government on Tuesday began selling used cars for dollars at a single Havana outlet, a first for the Communist-run state and a further step toward the dollarization of a segment of its retail sector.
so if communist cuba is some one to look at as a good thing why do they only make 100USD a month? why is a frigging used land cruiser selling for 80k? is it all those "taxes that will pay for all of our free stuff in action"? low wages,inflated item costs but oh yeah hey they get health care yay right? trump will have a field day with this headline
Around a hundred people showed up to look at the cars, representing a hodgepodge of brands and models. Around one in 20 Cubans owns a car and the cost puts them out of the reach of many citizens, in a country where the average wage is below the equivalent of $100 per month. Yoan Orlando Milian, a 37-year-old who splits his time between Miami and Havana, said he had camped out for days to be the first in line to purchase a car. “I will do anything for my family. And this is a good option for my wife and kids in Havana,” he said from the window of his 2011 Toyota Land Cruiser that he had bought for $80,000 - more than double the amount he might expect to pay in the United States.
