Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders are offering the final pitches in New Hampshire tonight ahead of the primaries Tuesday.
Here are the best lines of the debate so far:
ON BERNIE SANDERSHILLARY CLINTON: “Well, let me start by saying that Senator Sanders and I share some very big Progressive goals.”
ON ACHIEVING HIS PROPOSALS
“Well I haven’t quite run for president before,” Bernie Sanders quipped, after being asked by the moderator how he has spent nearly two decades in Congress without having passed his proposals.
HILLARY CLINTON: “There is no disagreement between us on universal coverage for health care. The disagreement is where do we start from and where do we end up? Senator Sanders wants us to start all over again.”
BERNIE SANDERS: “So I do believe in the future, not by dismantling what we have here. I helped write that bill, but by moving forward, rallying the American people. I do believe we should have health care for all.”
ON BEING A ‘PROGRESSIVE’
HILLARY CLINTON: “If we’re going to get into labels, I don’t think it was particularly Progressive to vote against the Brady Bill five times. I don’t think it was Progressive to vote to give gun makers and sellers immunity. I don’t think it was Progressive to vote against Ted Kennedy’s immigration reform.”
Sanders has since said that he changed his position on the legislation that provided gunmakers with immunity in lawsuits.
BERNIE SANDERS: “A Progressive is someone who makes progress. That what’s I intend to do.”
ON RUNNING AGAINST DEMOCRATS
BERNIE SANDERS: “The Republicans did win by three points. I came in second. In that race the Democrat was the spoiler, not me,” the Vermont senator said in response to his history of running against Democrats as a third party candidate and referring to a 1998 election.
Adding, “I want to see working people and young people come into the party in way that doesn’t exist now. I want a 50-stage strategy so it’s not just the party of 25 states.”
ON REPRESENTING THE ‘ESTABLISHMENT’
BERNIE SANDERS: “Secretary Clinton does represent the establishment. I represent, I hope, ordinary Americans and by the way who are not all that enamored with the establishment.”
Clinton fired back, “Senator Sanders is the only person who would characterize me a woman running to be the first woman president as exemplifying the establishment.”
“Enough is enough. If you’ve got something to say, say it directly,” Clinton added, referring to a suggestion that she’s in the pocket of the special interests. “I think it’s time to end the very artful smear that you and your campaign have been carrying out in recent weeks and let’s talk about the issues that divide us.”
Sanders responded, “let’s talk about issues.”
