11:04 am
opening debate she is up against the likes of amy and beatle or rock the rest of the candidates including other favorites bernie sanders and joe biden will take part in the 2nd debate and gallagher is live for us in miami florida so 10 candidates in this 1st debate who's standing out so far and. while this is a very crowded field as you know this is over 2 nights 20 candidate since total and this is all about creating momentum creating more people here for her to move it and i have to say so far in this debate we're about an hour of course into it it's the women who are standing out a meek local show is doing a good job. from hawaii the 1st hindu to be afforded the house of representatives has spoken very little but she's poised she gets to the point she talked about her service to the country elizabeth warren of course is the person that's heading up the polls in tonight's list of 10 candidates is putting in
11:05 am
a solid performance cory booker has spoken quite a lot detail. from texas has been attacked by some of the candidates he looks slightly nervous in this debate and this is an essential debate for these 10 candidates they need to create the men to especially those who don't have the name recognition about people like elizabeth warren. cory booker do have expected over the next few weeks a fairly big call of these 20 candidates because after these 2 debates if they don't do well if they don't create those those moments of people will remember that their campaign finance money will dry up and they will drop away and that's what some democratic voters want they say there's too many people here there's too much choice they want this thing to get whittled down fairly quickly to the candidates they want to see running but we've got 18 months left of what's going into an election the democratic party don't even pick their candidate until next summer but this is a chance for the american public to meet many of these candidates for the 1st time so far many of them are putting in a solid performance but it's
11:06 am
a crowded field and it's difficult to stand out at this point in time and what about on the issues what are democratic voters looking for. or what's taking up the 1st hour of the debate is essentially immigration especially after those pictures of the father and his daughter lying dead at the rio grande there was some argument among some of the candidates about how they would put immigration policies into place but they generally all agree on these policies they're talking about gun control a moment they all agree so the devil is in the details at the moment but these debates are so crowded so diverse it is hard for any candidate to stand out there has been some infighting just a little bit people trying to distinguish themselves from one another but i think the next few weeks the next few months will see this crowded field thin down to the people that do well in the polls that raise more money because going forward that the qualifications to get into these debates are getting tougher you have to get a certain amount of donations from a certain amount of states and raise
11:07 am
a certain amount of money so if they don't do well here tonight and tomorrow night it could be the end of their presidential hopes fairly soon thank you so much for that andy gallagher live for us in miami florida. palestinians have rejected the tramp administration safety $1000000000.00 economic plan saying they want to give up their rights for money the proposal is part of a peace initiative the u.s. is calling the deal of the century it was unveiled by senior white house adviser jared and a 2 day conference in bahrain hoda abdel-hamid reports. senior white house adviser jared christian are gathered arab dignitaries israeli businessmen investors and politicians from the wider world to discuss how to kickstart the palestinian economy over the next decade reaction we've he called his plan the opportunity of the century. question is counting on allies like saudi arabia and the u.s. for support in soliciting $50000000000.00 in investment pledges even though lebanon
