Ten months ago, there were nearly twenty candidates vying for the Democratic Party’s nomination for President. Nearly nine months away from the general election, there are only three candidates vying for that nomination. After a strong showing last Tuesday, former Vice President Joe Biden now stands as the front runner for the aforementioned nomination. Following close behind, Sen. Bernie Sanders stands in a position to retake the lead with a strong showing tonight. Meanwhile, Rep. Tulsi Gabbard must make her presence felt tonight or her campaign may be forced to end.
