'You called me a liar,' Warren told Sanders post-Iowa debate

"Yeah, OK. Good", Sanders said.

Phillip's question to Warren "was tantamount to calling Sanders a liar, and that certainly should not be a moderator's job, especially when Philip had the opportunity to ask Warren directly if Sanders ever told her that", Poynter said.

One of the striking things about the conversation between Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders that I'm hearing from Iowans is, it's not necessarily about the two of them.

After the moment became the subject of speculation, CNN spent the entire day digging through audio files from various microphones at the event to come up with audio of the exchange.

Warren said on Monday that Sanders had told her in December 2018 that a woman could not be elected - while Sanders said the claim was "ludicrous". "You told me. alright, let's not do it now".

"I beat an incumbent Republican Congressman", Sanders said. "Well, as a matter of fact, I didn't say it". "What I did say that night was that Donald Trump is a sexist, a racist and a liar who would weaponize whatever he could", he said.

Senator Amy Klobuchar jumped in to echo Warren's point, adding that two of the Democrats who ousted Republicans from crucial statewide governorships were women, Gov. Gretchen Whitmer of MI and Gov. Laura Kelly of Kansas.

DeRozan - after a quip about Lowry being "terrible"- said he feels the Raptors point guard has only gotten better as he has aged. Powell's three midway through the second saw Toronto go back up by 12, and the Raptors went into the halftime break up 51-43.

"Do you want to have this discussion?"

'That is correct, ' he responded. "Sanders told you a woman could not win the election?" she asked Warren, as the audience and Sanders laughed.

When the stunned Vermont senator challenged her, Ms Warren repeated her initial allegation.

Warren maintained that Sanders had made that statement, but added "I'm not here to fight with Bernie". "This question about whether or not a woman can be president has been raised, and it's time for us to attack it head-on". True, but there was only one candidate on stage last night - Sen. "I think the best way to talk about who can win is by looking at a person's winning record", she said.

Collectively they have lost 10 elections.

For those on stage, the debate offered the candidates a final high-stakes chance to make their case to voters.

'So true, ' Klobuchar chimed in. "Elizabeth Warren and I will continue to work together, we will debate the issues". And here's what I know. Warren did not take it, and the two progressive candidates, who until recently have avoided criticizing each other publicly, exchanged words - which until now were inaudible. We need a candidate who will excite all parts of the Democratic Party, bring everyone in, and give everyone a Democrat to believe in.

"Do I believe a woman can win in 2020?"
