Graham brings wit to GOP undercard debate & O’Malley calls for more democratic debates from DNC


Before the three-hour primetime debate, four of the lowest polling GOP candidates took to the stage to discuss their stances on policy and Donald Trump. Sen. Lindsey Graham took advantage of being on the smaller stage at The Reagan Presidential Library to firmly detail his foreign policy agenda and add humor to the discussion. CNN’s Manu Raju describes the differences in Graham’s performance in this debate compared to the first. Meanwhile, Democratic candidate Martin O’Malley wants the DNC to consider scheduling more debates for the Democrats to allow more exposure for all candidates. Karen Tulmulty of The Washington Post and Molly Ball of The Atlantic explain the apprehension of the DNC and why O’Malley thinks more debates would be “better for the party”.
