MARQUETTE, Mich (WLUC) - Night two of the second Democratic Debate added more spirit to the presidential race, according to Marquette County Democratic Party.
Major discussion points included immigration, drug laws, wage disparity, jobs, the economy and education.
Ten candidates debated in Detroit to stay in contention. Marquette County Democratic Party chairman Brian Kerrigan says hosting the debate in Michigan allowed for conversations about what matters to this state.
“We’ve got some important things here in Michigan that we’ve got to get done and address,” said Kerrigan. “I think that was addressed last night. Flint water issue being one of them, the protection of our natural lands and waters, and the importance of the candidates issues on the matter.”
Kerrigan found conversations regarding the middle class were left out of Wednesday night's debate.
The next democratic debate will be held in September 12 and 13.
This is one of eight more debates before the primary election.
