The 6th Democratic Debate Takeaways The last Democratic presidential debate of 2019, sponsored by the PBS NewsHour and Politico, has concluded.

After an hour without direct clashes, Sen. Elizabeth Warren attacked South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg over his willingness to hold fundraisers with wealthy donors. Buttigieg in turn accused Warren of hypocrisy, saying she raised money in a similar way while serving in the Senate.

The candidates also differed sharply over health care, exposing the debates over pragmatism versus big ideas within the Democratic party.

This episode: White House correspondent Tamara Keith, campaign correspondent Scott Detrow, campaign correspondent Asma Khalid, and political reporter Danielle Kurtzleben.
