Clinton, Sanders Raise Volume in DebateClinton, Sanders Raise Volume in Debate

Presidential hopefuls Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders ratcheted up their attacks in a bruising, final debate before next Tuesday’s New York primary. The Democratic race has turned increasingly negative in recent days, as the candidates traded barbs about their qualifications for the presidency. They also clashed on Wall Street banks, gun controls and the minimum wage. Sanders has won seven of the past eight contests, but Clinton holds a clear lead in race for the nomination, BBC reported. The Democrats have largely avoided the personal attacks that have dominated the Republicans’ debates. But with so much at stake, that changed in Thursday’s debate. “Does Secretary Clinton have the experience and intelligence to be president? Of course she does,” Sanders said at the debate. “But I do question her judgment.” Practically from the opening bell, Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders went after each other’s policy positions and records with a vigor that stood in stark contrast to the polite exchanges of past debates. Sure, they were both qualified to be president, they admitted, but both questioned their opponent’s “judgment”.
