Sanders is in pole position heading into South Carolina's primary and the debate offers a late-hour opportunity for other Democratic hopefuls, former vice president Biden in particular, to halt his momentum.

Sanders, 78, emerged largely unscathed from the last debate and went on to win the Nevada caucuses, but he is expected to come under fire this time from all directions.

An anti-Trump protester in an Uncle Sam costume stands outside the CBS News Democratic Debate at the Gaillard Center Tuesday, February 25 2020, in Charleston, South Carolina. Senator Warren went for the jugular at the last debate, and it was clear from the first few minutes that Bloomberg was woefully unprepared for the event.

Biden, 77, is known for his verbal stumbles.

In Tuesday's debate, candidates repeatedly shouted over one another and plowed past their time limits, arguing that nominating Sanders, a self-avowed democratic socialist, would cost Democrats the White House and control of Congress. Bernie Sanders of Vermont; Tom Steyer, a billionaire businessman; and Sen.

On Monday, Biden mistakenly told a crowd of supporters he was a "Democratic candidate for the United States Senate".

South Carolina's primary is Saturday.

"When I exited the plane I was directed to one side of the tarmac, while the African American congressmen travelling with me were sent to the other side", said Mr Biden.

Biden's share among black voters shed 10 points, to 23 percent.

The violence took place as Trump was being feted by Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi in the western Indian city of Ahmedabad. Hundreds of people supporting the new law clashed with those opposing it, with stone pelting from both sides.

But as Sanders has risen in the polls, he seems to have poached support from Biden in sc.

After taking aim at 2020 rival Elizabeth Warren's home state, Bernie Sanders is doing the same to Amy Klobuchar's.

And former NY mayor Mike Bloomberg attacked Sanders' record on gun control.

"I don't think there was ever a situation where congressmen were arrested in South Africa".

Sanders held his ground on Tuesday, defending healthcare as a human right and saying his economic and social justice agenda, including his Medicare for All plan to replace private health insurance, is supported by the American people.

His $16.3 trillion climate change proposal would be paid for with fees and taxes on fossil fuel companies and by reducing defense spending, as well as projected tax revenue increases from new jobs it would create.

"Given the fact that I have been in opposition my entire is a little bit amusing to find myself as the so-called front-runner", Sanders told a CNN town hall event Monday. "And those happen to be people that I talked to a lot and have a lot of - a long history of working with, and, therefore, that's a population where I do really well", Steyer said.

At the same time, Castro "initiated a major literacy program", he said. With the state of the race, it may be the last best chance for six of the challengers to stop Bernie Sanders from running away with the nomination.

Sanders, his status as the Democratic front-runner undeniable, faced the brunt of the attacks for much of the night.
