Bernie Sanders; Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren; former Texas Rep. Beto O'Rourke; former Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper; former Maryland Rep. John Delaney; and Montana Gov. Steve Bullock. Sanders and Warren will be at the center of the stage.

Cory Booker; former Vice President Joe Biden; California Sen. Kamala Harris; Andrew Yang; Hawaii Rep. Tulsi Gabbard; Washington Gov. Jay Inslee; and New York Mayor Bill de Blasio. The candidates appear ready to stop the pleasantries and go for the jugular in the fight for the Democratic nomination. Biden and Sanders attacked Sen. Kamala Harris' “Medicare-for-all” health care plan Monday almost immediately after it was unveiled. According to Bret Baier, host of "Special Report," Biden has the most to lose and Harris has the most to gain from the second round of debates.
Trump: Sharpton a 'con man,' Cummings should investigate himself with his own committee
The war of words between President Trump and House Oversight and Reform Committee Chair Elijah Cummings, D-Md.,over the condition of Baltimore and the border crisis has expanded to include the Rev. Al Sharpton, a staunch Cummings supporter. Sharpton held a press conference Monday to condemn Trump's criticism of Cummings. (Over the weekend, Trump called Baltimore a "disgusting, rat and rodent infested mess" where "no human being would want to live" - and blamed Cummings, in part, for the city's deterioration. Some critics called Trump's remarks racist. Trump supporters argued the president was telling the truth about Baltimore and Democratic leadership in major cities.) Ahead of the Sharpton press conference, Trump called the activist a "con man" and "troublemaker." Sharpton replied by calling the president a "bigot." Trump then claimed that "Billions of dollars have been pumped in" to Baltimore. "The money was stolen or wasted," Trump tweeted. "Ask Elijah Cummings where it went. He should investigate himself with his Oversight Committee!" Deputy White House Pres Secretary Hogan Gidley had advice for Trump critics: Consider Sharpton's history and don't take his advice.
