DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) Elizabeth Warren made a forceful case for a female president in Tuesday night's final presidential debate before primary voting begins.
She also stood behind her accusation that progressive rival Bernie Sanders had told her a woman couldn't beat Donald Trump.
Sanders vehemently denied Warren's accusation, which threatened to split the Democratic Party’s left flank at a critical moment less than three weeks before Iowa's caucuses.
And he said of course a woman could win, noting that Hillary Clinton scored millions more votes than Mr. Trump.
The Democratic Party’s leading presidential candidates also sparred over Iraq, war and foreign policy.
