Former Vice President Joe Biden, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) and Mayor Pete Buttigieg continue to lead the Democratic field, as the top 10 candidates take the stage on Wednesday night in Atlanta for their fifth debate — against the backdrop of the public impeachment inquiry of President Trump.

The big picture: Warren again dominated the debate, as the candidates touched on voting rights, abortion, legalizing marijuana health care, wealth tax, the current impeachment inquiries, foreign policy, climate change, child care and other issues. Warren fended off soft attacks from other candidates while touching on her numerous plans.
