The Democrats are preparing for the second round of debates. Everyone is waiting for the expected showdown between Joe Biden and Kamala Harris after their last fight month in Miami.

The debate in Detroit, in which Biden and Harris are accompanied by eight other people on stage, comes about as Donald Trump continues to attack Congressman Elijah Cummings and the city of Baltimore – which attracts the wrath of the critics I have the President's attacks are labeled as racist.

Mr Biden has promised not to be as nice as he was during his appearance in Miami, but he has continued to fight attacks on his previous positions on civil rights issues, which have given Ms. Harris an opening in the early debates. But will any of this be important in the race considering Mr. Biden's outstanding leadership? Only time will tell.

If you thought the fighting would be from last night in Detroit, think You again!

Elizabeth Warren has attempted to use her attack on John Delaney when she said she does not understand why someone would run for president if they just want to say that things can not be done (we have an e -Mail fundraiser, which cites the line from their campaign just 35 minutes ago!).

Now, Mr Delaney is back in his own way:



Here's a bit more about Mr Gilchrist, the Lieutenant Governor of Michigan, who is spicing up the debate hall at the moment :

He's a 36-year-old Detroiter who has been in politics in his state since at least 2014, when he returned to Washington as the national campaign organizer of MoveOn.org. [19659024] 2019-07-31T23: 18: 25.673Z

Garlin Gilchrist: "All the experts said we were a red state, but we proved them wrong in 2018 and we will prove them wrong in 2020".



Detroit is the place to go, and Governor of Michigan, Garlin Gilchrist, enters the stage to get everyone on their toes.

"Hello Detroit," he says.



Here is a tweet from Donald Trump an hour ago, which continues his fight with Elijah Cummings, against which allegations of racism were levied on the president.



At the top of the debating stage in Michigan: The Flint City Wide Choir.

It was wonderful.

A quick reminder: Flint is the city that became known for its water crisis after city residents began to complain that the water was toxic. The crisis at that time attracted the nation's attention, with some big demands for reforms to change the source of water. The water is still poisonous.

We'll see if this problem pops up tonight after we did not get a piece last night.



After yesterday's debate – in which Elizabeth Warren said this US policy should never strike first with a nuclear weapon – the topic of American nuclear weapons policy seems to be under debate (at least on Twitter).

Here's the full list of candidates ahead of today's event:

  • Colorado Sen. Michael Bennet

We are just under two hours after the start of today's debate.

Headlines in today's debate include Joe Biden and Kamala Harris, who are somewhat upset by racial issues and the former vice president's position on bus transport (a policy that has been introduced to support the separation of public schools) had. [19659018]

Mr. Biden was frequently attacked for his past civil rights positions, though he is largely on his record. You can expect to see more coming up tonight as Mrs Harris makes another attempt to stand out in a crowded democratic primary field – and one that has much more to offer Mrs Harris if she wants to win the title nomination the party.
