10 Top Democrats Face Off in Houston


Ten top contenders for the Democratic Party presidential nomination will face off in Houston Thursday night. Polls show former Vice President Joe Biden maintaining his lead, and as Mike O'Sullivan reports, the others hope to gain ground as they head toward next year's party votes and U.S. presidential election.

The top Democratic Party candidates hoping to replace US President Donald Trump in the next election will face-off for the first time later on Thursday.

Ten candidates will share the stage, leaving out 10 others who didn't meet the requirements to be included.

The debate will take place in Texas, a state which Democrats hope to win.
