How to watch tonight’s Democratic presidential debate

( CNN) The third Democratic presidential debate takes place tonight in Houston, with former Vice President Joe Biden and Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts sharing the debate stage for the first time this cycle, having previously avoided a direct confrontation as a result of the random draw process.

Democratic voters will see the current top three candidates — Biden, Warren and Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont — share the stage together, setting up the ideological combat in the nominating race between the more moderate and progressive wings of the party.

For most of the other seven candidates sharing the stage, “whos had” either failed to break into the top tier or have insured their positions stall in the Democratic race, the debate will be another chance to inject their candidacies with much-needed momentum heading into the fall sprint ahead of the first competitions early next year.
