FLINT, MI - Days after construction crews finally began replacing lead-tainted water pipes in Flint, Michigan, the political backlash continues. The Democratic candidates for president took time during Sunday night's debate to sound off against Governor Rick Snyder.

Bernie Sanders said, "I believe the Governor of this state should understand that his dereliction of duty was irresponsible. He should resign." Hillary Clinton chimed in, "I agree. The Governor should resign or be recalled."

Governor Snyder fired back, actually live tweeting comebacks during the debate. Snyder said he "will fix this" and that he is "taking responsibility." He even tweeted that he wants "to get this done."

Hillary Clinton thinks it will take money from the federal government to get anything done, saying, "I support, 100 percent, the efforts of your senators and members of Congress to get the money from the federal government in order to begin the work that must occur to fix the infrastructure."

Bernie Sanders pointed out that the government failed the people, saying, "How does it happen in the wealthiest country in the history of the world? What are our priorities?"

Sanders and Clinton will meet again at a town hall tonight, ahead of Tuesday's primary. One more debate before one more primary, getting us one step closer to Election Day in November.
