Candidates focus on using the few precious minutes of debate they must leave a lasting impression on the largest audience that will see some of them. Following these debates, candidates must meet donor and survey thresholds that are twice as high as the first two debates.
Immigration and health care remain important issues that are likely to emerge among others. "Medicare for All" will be discussed in more detail on Tuesday and Wednesday, as candidates have some disagreements over how health care for single payers can be implemented.
Bernie Sanders, the nominee who popularized Medicare for All in the 2016 Democratic primary, will be on stage alongside Elizabeth Warren, who is also the pay-as-you-go health worker has prescribed. Although the two progressive senators have a civil relationship, they can seize the opportunity to differentiate themselves in the debating phase.
Sanders and Warren may also be targeted by John Delaney, John Hickenlooper and Steve Bullock, more moderate candidates who oppose Medicare, and seek to improve their political profile.

Whitmer: "The People of Michigan Do not Care About the President's Twitter Feed"
15:28 pm: In an interview with Caitlin Huey-Burns of CBS News, Michigan Democratic Gov. Gretchen Whitmer said candidates on stage should try to focus on "table problems" instead of responding to the president.
"People called me for advice on what's going on in Michigan and what Michiganders wants to hear, it's really about the table issues," Whitmer said. "These are the basics Michiganders wants to hear, and I suspect that many Americans are interested in this debate, and this week, and also in the wake of these elections."
After President Trump won Michigan just under 11,000 votes in 2016, Whitmer won the governorship in 2018. She said, "turning to everyone" is necessary to win a swing state like Michigan.
"As a candidate, I went to all 83 counties in Michigan, and this is a huge state, but I did it because I think it's important to show up, if you show up and actually listen, you can not Diverge from the things that really matter because you listen and learn things that are really important every day, "said Whitmer.
"The people of Michigan are not interested in the president's Twitter feed, and we care about feeding our families," Whitmer continued.

The candidates are likely to be asked about Trump's racist attacks.
2:00 pm: The ten candidates on stage will likely be asked about the recent racist utterances of President Trump, who opposed color legislators.
Earlier this month, the Democrat president and a handful of Republicans were heavily criticized for nominating representatives from Minnesota Ilhan Omar, Massachusetts-born Ayanna Pressley, and Massachusetts-based Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Michigan's New York and Rashida Tlaib should "return" to the "totally ruined and crime-prone places from which they came."
This week, Mr. Trump again selected a color legislator, Rep. Elijah Cummings from Maryland critics accused him of sowing racist animus to parts of his constituency prior to the 2020 elections to get it going. The President denounced Cummings as a "brutal bully" and described his predominantly African-American neighborhood as a "disgusting, rat and rodent-ridden mess".
Although almost all Democrats have criticized Mr. Trump's comments, it is noteworthy whether there are any of the presidential hopefuls on the scene who will lobby Democrats to condemn the president's policies rather than themselves to focus on his controversial rhetoric – some consider distraction.
