No surprise: the former NY mayor and billionaire's first time on the debate stage as he rises in the polls was contentious.

"We have over 10.6 million people on Twitter and 99.9 per cent them are decent human beings, are working people who believe in justice, compassion and love", he said.

Mr. Sanders, a populist who has framed his campaign about going after billionaire elites and sweeping money out of politics, focused his attacks on Mr. Bloomberg, accusing him of fostering "a corrupt political system bought by billionaires".

"Are you trying to say that I'm dumb?"

But mostly, the night was about Warren kneecapping the guy who had bought his way into second place in the polls, which probably did more to remove an obstacle from Bernie Sanders' path than to save her campaign. "The fact of the matter is he didn't endorse Barack or me when we ran". Elizabeth Warren jumped in with "whoa whoa whoa".

Sen. Bernie Sanders attacked Bloomberg on "stop-and-frisk", the NY policing policy that was ruled unconstitutional, while former Vice President Joe Biden argued that he, not Bloomberg, is the most electable candidate against Trump.

They criticized Bloomberg, who has been accused over the years of sexist comments, for his treatment of women as well as his support while mayor of "stop-and-frisk" police policies that ensnared disproportionate numbers of blacks and Latinos.

The moderate card was played over and over again by Buttigieg, who ripped Sanders and Bloomberg in one well-crafted line that was delivered early in the debate: "We shouldn't have to choose between one candidate who wants to burn this party down and another candidate who wants to buy this party out".

"We have very few nondisclosure agreements", said Bloomberg.

He said: "I thought my first responsibility was to give people the right to live". Ms Warren responded: "You need a different apology".

"Mike is looking forward to joining the other Democratic candidates on stage and making the case for why he's the best candidate to defeat Donald Trump and unite the country", Bloomberg's campaign manager, Kevin Sheekey, said in a statement.

He added: "I made my own money".

Former South Bend, Ind., mayor Pete Buttigieg and Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar, both coming off strong performances in New Hampshire, are looking to retain their momentum in urban and racially diverse Nevada. It's not a plan, its PowerPoint.

Buttigieg also was more than willing to jump on Klobuchar when she got a question about her not being able to name the president of Mexico nor talk about his specific policies in a recent interview with Telemundo. Klobuchar snapped. "Or you're mocking me?" "I am talking about Mayor Bloomberg".
