Democratic presidential candidates will take the stage in Des Moines, Iowa on Tuesday night for their seventh debate. Six candidates are taking the stage -- less than a third of those that qualified for the first debate back in June. Businessman Andrew Yang, who is still in the running, did not make the cut for the debate due to polling performance. The candidates that will be taking the stage are -- former Vice President Joe Biden, former South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg, Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, billionaire activist Tom Steyer and Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren.
