  • Welcome everyone to night two (2) of the first Democratic debate for president, we are BuzzFeed News and we’ll be here with you all evening with the night’s biggest moments.

  • Ten candidates are on stage tonight in Miami. Here’s who they are. It begins at 9 p.m. on NBC.

  • Just because it’s night two doesn’t mean it’s the B-team. Tonight’s debate features frontrunner and former Vice President Joe Biden, and major contenders such as Sen. Kamala Harris, Sen. Bernie Sanders, and South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg.

  • Expect Biden to be the focus. He’s been at the top of polls and has a giant target on his back: A huge part of his appeal is the idea that many voters see him as the candidate most likely to beat President Trump.

  • The dynamics are interesting: Biden and Sanders represent the old guard of the Democratic party, though they are ideologically different. Buttigieg and Harris are seen as the future.

  • Expect Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand to make a move to stand out tonight. Her campaign hasn’t performed as well as expected, and she will likely seek to set herself apart from the mostly-male stage.
