Political analysts Chuck Coughlin and Bennet Kelly join Mike to discuss the second round of Democratic Presidential debates.

• In the first debate, what happened in the presumed showdown between Senators Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren for the hearts of the Democratic Left?

• In the second debate, how did frontrunner VP Joe Biden fare in responding to the inevitable attempts to take down the top guy?

• The qualification bar will be raised for the next debates in September. So far only seven have qualified: Biden, Booker, Buttigieg, Harris, O’Rourke, Sanders, and Warren.  Three others are close: Castro, Yang and Klobuchar. Who is likely to make the cut? Did any candidate perform well enough this week to get them past the September threshold?

• Who helped themselves this week? Whose campaign is on life support?

The Think Tank airs on KTAR News 92.3 FM on Sunday at 1-2 p.m. and repeats at 9-10 p.m.

Podcasts are available after each show is broadcast.
