Warren was the only one of Wednesday's 10 participants making any kind of impact in the polls and she shared the stage with struggling candidates Gabbard, U.S. Sens. Cory Booker of New Jersey and Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota; U.S. Rep. Tim Ryan of Ohio; New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio; Gov. Jay Inslee, of Washington state; former Housing and Urban Development Secretary Julián Castro; and former U.S. Reps. Beto O'Rourke and John Delaney.
Gabbard's sister, Vrindavan Gabbard, took aim at MSNBC using the congresswoman's Twitter account.
"It's clear who MSNBC wants to be president: Elizabeth Warren," the tweet from "V" read. "They're giving her more time than all of the other candidates combined. They aren't giving any time to Tulsi at all."
The Washington Post reported that Warren got the third-highest amount speaking time with 9.3 minutes, outpaced by Booker with 10.9 minutes and O'Rourke with 10.3 minutes. Gabbard tied with Delaney for the third-lowest with 6.6 minutes.
Warren, however, was asked five questions by the NBC moderators within the first 30 minutes of the debate. She received her third question while several other candidates had only been asked one.
