After being on the campaign trail for weeks, Democratic presidential hopefuls finally got their chance to debate one another on a national stage.
The field was so large, however, that it had to be split up over two nights.
Ten candidates debated one another on Thursday, a night after 10 others took the same stage in Miami.
And yet some candidates were still left on the sideline. Three candidates didn’t have the polling numbers to qualify for host NBC, and a fourth entered the race too late to qualify.
