In Saturday night’s debate, each of the Democratic presidential candidates showed that they have a firm grasp on the foreign policy challenges facing our nation, and that they respect voters enough to give serious and substantive answers on what it takes to tackle terrorism across the globe. We saw our candidates offer clear solutions to important issues that will lift up the middle class and continue the progress we’ve made to keep America moving forward. Our candidates weren’t afraid of tough questions from the moderators, and they have a clear vision for how to make college more affordable, raise the federal minimum wage, protect our seniors, and fix the broken immigration system.
After watching the Republicans recycle failed, stale ideas at their debate on Tuesday night, the Democratic debate tonight was a breath of fresh air for Americans. The Democrats showed they are up to the task of building on the progress that President Obama has made for middle-class families. The American people can’t afford to go backwards, and tonight’s debate was a reminder we don’t have to—we can keep America moving forward.
