Sanders and Clinton Clash in New Hampshire Debate

Feb 5, 2016

The Democratic Party’s last debate before the New Hampshire primary was the best debate of the 2016 election season so far. Hillary Clinton accused Bernie Sanders of promising things that he will not be able to deliver and of an “artful smear” of her while Sanders continued to rail against the income inequality and the influence of money in politics and talk about Clinton’s ties to Wall Street. Will Sanders be able to maintain his lead in New Hampshire and even up the contest? How will his message play as the campaign turns west and south? On the Republican side, Marco Rubio’s third place finish in Iowa has made him the target of his rivals in the GOP establishment lane. Donald Trump is maybe not as o.k. with his second place finish in Iowa as might have first been suspected. He and Iowa winner Ted Cruz continue their back and forth as the New Hampshire primary approaches. Will Trump be able to maintain his lead and win New Hampshire before the campaign turns west and south. How will Ted Cruz do? Will Marco Rubio build on his Iowa momentum and surprise the pollsters and pundits? What about John Kasich, Jeb Bush and Chris Christie? In Georgia politics, the Pastor Protection Act gained approval by a House subcommittee allowing it to move forward. Will any of the other RFRA measures in the General Assembly gain any traction? And what’s the future under the Gold Dome for funding for MARTA expansion? The panel weighs in on all of this and more!
