Overview: The Democrats' fourth debate is the candidates' final such meeting before the first votes are cast in Iowa and New Hampshire. It was marked by sharp exchanges between Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders, including over their positions on how to address gun violence and health care. Martin O'Malley was able to interject himself a few times, for example on Clinton's record on Wall Street.
