With less than a year to go before the 2020 election and the Iowa caucus fast approaching, seven Democratic presidential candidates took the debate stage Thursday night to vie for Americans’ favor. Here are some of the most surprising moments from the sixth debate.

In a heated moment, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) called out South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg for holding meetings with wealthy donors in a wine cave.

The 70-year-old senator from Massachusetts wouldn’t be challenged on her age, either. When told that she would be the oldest president inaugurated, she quipped, “I’d also be the youngest woman ever inaugurated.”

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), the only Jewish candidate on the debate stage, shared his personal relationship to Israel while affirming the need for a two-state solution with Palestine.

Warren also struck down the argument, popular among proponents of trickle-down economists, that her plan to tax the rich would hurt economic growth.
