Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders came out swinging at the Democratic Debate on Wednesday in Miami, Florida. The presidential hopefuls sparred over climate change, immigration issues and Wall Street during the Washington Post/Univision debate. Clinton appeared eager to shrug off Sanders’ surprising win in Michigan.
When asked if she would drop out of the race if she were indicted, Clinton responded, “That is not gonna happen. I’m not even answering that question.”
On immigration issues, Clinton took a jab at Sanders, claiming that he supported the Minutemen patrols at the Mexican border. Sanders fired back, calling the accusation a “horrific” attack line that was based on a distortion of facts,
“No, I do not support vigilantes,” Bernie proclaimed. “Madam Secretary, I will match my record against yours any day of the week,” he added.
Clinton also attacked Trump’s wall proposal, and said that Congress has done a good job at securing the border. She added that it was time to focus on immigration reform.
The former Secretary of State also made a weak attempt to link Sanders to the Koch brothers. “The leaders of the fossil fuel industry, the Koch brothers, have just paid to put up an ad praising Senator Sanders,” she said.
The comment refers to the Koch brothers backing Freedom Partners group, which released a video applauding Sanders for opposing the Export-Import Bank.
On the issue of climate change, there was a lot of interrupting from both sides of the debate.
