LAS VEGAS, Nevada — Tuesday night marked the first Democratic presidential debate hosted by CNN. Millions watched to see whether or not front-runners former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, and openly-socialist opponent Bernie Sanders, would provide audiences with heated debate and uncensored rhetoric. It’s safe to say that the gloves stayed on, but the absence of several issues warranted a response from ALGOP leadership.
“They did not speak on the economy or the flat-lined job growth that citizens desperately need addressed,” said ALGOP Chairman Terry Lathan. “Contrasted with the Republican presidential candidates, many of whom have released or are soon to release their economic growth plans, the Democrats are stuck in the ditch of no ideas, are playing the blame game and have a bankrupt vision for our nation.”
Tuesday’s debate featured Lincoln Chafee, Hillary Clinton, Martin O’Malley, Bernie Sanders and Jim Webb.
“We look forward to November 2016, when we will take our nation back from the lines of thoughtless and reckless actions that have been thrust upon us.”
The Democratic primary debate was held at the Wynn resort and casino in Las Vegas before a live audience of more than 1,000.
