Nobody noticed it at the time, but in one week in April, the tide of the Democratic primary flipped irreversibly, leading to the emergence of Elizabeth Warren — not Bernie Sanders — as the clear progressive favorite in the 2020 field.

Why it matters: That week coincides with the addition of Joe Biden to the field and the story that has generated more interactions on social media than any other piece about Warren this year, according to data from NewsWhip exclusively provided to Axios: the release of her student debt cancellation plan.

12 candidates took the stage for Tuesday night's Democratic debate in Ohio, hosted by CNN and the New York Times in a state that every winning presidential candidate has carried since 1960.

The big picture: This was the first debate since Sen. Elizabeth Warren briefly overtook Joe Biden in the national RealClearPolitics average of polls, assuming an invigorated frontrunner status that was met with attacks from nearly every candidate. With the backdrop of an intensifying impeachment investigation and a Turkish military incursion that has set off bipartisan condemnation, the candidates clashed on health care, foreign policy, Big Tech, income inequality and more.

Pushing back against Sen. Elizabeth Warren's claims that he is "running in the wrong presidential primary," former Vice President Joe Biden wrote in a Medium post on Tuesday that Warren's approach to politics is elitist and condescending.

"I have fought for the Democratic party my whole career. I know what we stand for, who we stand with and what we believe. And it’s not just policies or issues. It’s in my bones. That’s not something everyone in this primary can say,"
— Joe Biden
