    As the Sunday night Debate began the three candidates were brought up too see which candidate would represent the Democratic Party for the 2016 run for Presidency. The three candidates running for Presidency of course are Senator Bernie Sanders, Governor Martin O’Malley, and last but not least we have Secretary Of State Hillary Clinton. Each come from a different background such as Bernie who was born in Brooklyn, New York, he attended Brooklyn College and University of Chicago, before coming into Politics Bernie was a carpenter and documentary filmmaker. He then became Mayor in 1981 and then later became a Senator. The next candidate that everyone should know by now is Secretary Of State Hillary Clinton who which grew up in Chicago, Illinois. Hillary actually attended Wellesley College and Yale Law School in which she graduated from. She worked for a law firm before turning to politics She was also First Lady of Former President Bill Clinton. The third candidate which is falling up short on the debate is Governor Martin O’Malley which is originally born in Washington, DC but raised in Maryland. He earned a B.A. Degree in 1985 from Catholic University of America. In 1988 he became Assistant State Attorney for the city of Baltimore. He was then elected mayor and later Governor of Maryland in 2006. Each have similar and different opinions during different topics such as Bernie Sanders who believes in raising the minimum wage to 15$, making public college/ public University, lowering healthcare and raising taxes a little bit will help the middle class. While Governer O’Malley points were about clean energy, financial reform and, gun policy reform. Hillary Clinton believes in lowering the cost for college, Reforming Criminal Justice, and making women have equal pay.

During the Debate the points brought up were how would the candidates help the economy, how would we take care of ISIS and the connection we have with Iran, how would they fix the Criminal Justice system, and would they change or fix the healthcare policy. Such as Sanders who spoke that he would raise minimum wage to 15$ and lower healthcare for everyone but increase taxes for the wealthy so that everyone can be stable in the economy so that the middle class can actually live more stable. He also stated that we would need defend gun control and edit it to make it safer such as increasing background checks so that people with criminal backgrounds and mental issues cannot purchase weapons. Also his idea is to lower the healthcare cost to at least $5,000 less. While Hillary Clintons points are to keep the healthcare act where it is and not let republicans repeal the act. Clinton also spoke about the point of criminal justice reform so that state attorneys look over cases in which a person death is looked over when they are under police care. She also stated that she would make sure they look into wall street and look over what is occurring and make sure the scammers are being taken care of because the economy would go a better route. As to Governor Martin O’Malley spoke about the point about the point of clean energy and that would solve the issue in between having a connection with Iran because we wouldn’t have to ask for things from them because we can use our own technology. O’Malley also spoke about taking of soldiers and there rights he believed in changing the criminal justice system as well. Although he had support for his points he spoke very vaguely. Through out the debate most people stated that the winner of this debate was Senator Bernie Sanders.
