Democratic Presidential Debate Takes Place Between Joe Biden And Bernie Sanders

Former Vice President Joe Biden and Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders faced off on Sunday night in their first one-on-one showdown at the 11th Democratic debate. 

Held in a closed studio in Washington, D.C., Biden and Sanders spent nearly 20 minutes of the two-hour debate discussing the coronavirus, which has killed 67 people nationwide, shut down schools and sports leagues, and even forced the candidates to debate while standing six feet apart as per the CDC’s recommendation.

The economy and health care  were also among the most-discussed topics of the evening. The candidates spent just over 11 minutes discussing the economy and just over eight minutes on health care.
