Third Democratic party debate takes place this...>

US: Third Democratic party debate takes place this evening at 2000EST in
Houston, Texas.
- First time all 10 major candidates have been on the same debate stage.
- Eyes will be on performances of former VP Joe Biden and Massachusetts Senator
Elizabeth Warren, the former leading most opinion polls on preferred Democrat
candidate and the latter rapidly catching up on Biden's numbers over recent
weeks. Two haven't shared stage in either of past two debates. 
- Major issue of debate likely to be healthcare, with divide between supporters
of buy in/public option that builds on Affordable Care Act (Biden) and those in
favour of more comprehensive Medicare for All (Warren, Sanders).
- Debate likely to be one of the last attempts for some campaigns with low
polling numbers to springboard their candidates (Klobuchar, Booker, O'Rourke,
Castro, Yang) into greater national recognition.
