Twelve presidential candidates crowd the stage Tuesday night in Columbus, Ohio for the fourth democratic primary debate; it’s the country’s largest presidential debate ever. In this hour, we’ll discuss what the candidates said, their positions on the issues, how well they made their case, and what the primary race looks like with the Iowa caucuses still four months away. Our guests are CAMILLE BURGE, assistant professor of political science at Villanova University, STEPHEN MEDVIC, professor of government at Franklin & Marshall College, and SHAUNA SHAMES, associate professor of political science at Rutgers University-Camden.
