LAS VEGAS, NV- Democratic candidates will roll the dice in Las Vegas tonight in their first debate. It’s not expected to be the circus the Republican debates were, so will anyone be watching?
“I’ll be watching," says Republican candidate Donald Trump. He’s betting it’ll be a flop. “I think it’s not going to be highly rated. I think you’re going to watch it for 10 or 15 minutes and people are going to get bored and turn it off.” Trump might be right, since many people don’t even know who the Democratic candidates are other than Hillary Clinton.
For the record, the candidates debating tonight are Clinton, Bernie Sanders, Martin O’Malley, Lincoln Chafee and Jim Webb.
We don’t need to tell you about Hillary, but you might not know Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders, who’s an Independent, not a Democrat.
Martin O’Malley was governor of Maryland for eight years.
Lincoln Chafee, a Rhode Island native, has served as Republican Senator and Independent Governor but he's running for President as a Democrat.
Finally, there’s Jim Webb, a highly decorated Marine veteran, former Senator, and former Secretary of the Navy.
Let the debating begin!
