The 12 top Democratic presidential candidates sharply criticized each other over healthcare, gun control and anti-trust policy on the Ohio stage where they met for the fourth Democratic primary debate. They mostly agreed in the first section of questioning: Congress should pursue an impeachment inquiry against President Trump.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts was looking to consolidate her steady gains in the polls, but took fire from her competitors.

Bernie Sanders of Vermont was back with his first campaign appearance since his recent heart attack.
