Twelve Democratic candidates have taken the stage in Ohio for their fourth debate.

Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., are now co-front-runners; Bernie Sanders suffered a heart attack; the impeachment inquiry against President Donald Trump is in full swing; and more. 

Here are answers to some questions you may be asking ahead of the debate.
