Democratic Debate Night 1: Live Chat

Ten candidates faced off in the first Democratic primary debate on Wednesday. Here is how our reporters covered it in real time. (You can also catch up with our recap, takeaways and fact checks.)

    Booker launches into a bit of his stump speech, about his parents and why he moved to Newark.

    Booker fell flat, to me. He is loquacious but it didn’t work in this format, as others have noted.

    I’d say O’Rourke was the one who looked most out of his depth.

    Eric Swalwell has someone already spinning in the spin room. (He was not in the debate.) That says so much about this primary.

    O’Rourke starts his closing statement by talking about his daughter, who “turned 11 this week.”

    I will say one thing – the debate moderators seemed very conscious of not setting off negative reaction on Twitter.

    For night one, they appear to have succeeded.

    I’m seeing some grumbling about Warren not getting questions in the second half.

    I kind of can’t believe we do this all over again tomorrow night with 10 more candidates. The double-header, man, it’s no joke.

    Amazing that we are getting through an entire debate with not one of the candidates directing viewers to their campaign websites.

    Great question.

    So, in terms of break-outs, no one had a clear moment. But I think Castro had a good night. Booker got a lot of time. And de Blasio raised his profile.

    Before we let you go for the night, we did more fact checks on Klobuchar and health insurance and Castro and O’Rourke’s argument on immigration.

    Final time count! Cory Booker (11:06) is the winner – Jay Inslee (5:05) is last, which he should be complaining about in the spin room in 3…2…1…..
