Five Democratic presidential hopefuls made their cases to an audience of college students during a marathon series of CNN town halls on Monday, an event that offered one of the clearest glimpses to date of the still-emerging primary field.

But the slate of appearances also provided a close look at the state of the 2020 primary, as the contenders raced to stand out in a field that has so far grown to 19 people.

Warren, who became the first 2020 hopeful to call for the House to begin impeachment proceedings against Trump last week, doubled down on that stance, arguing that lawmakers have a civic duty to weigh in on whether the president should be removed from office.
Been on a plane and in cars watching the fascinating candidate Town Halls on @CNN. One thing I’d note right off the top:— David Axelrod (@davidaxelrod) April 23, 2019
Passionate @ewarren oration on the anti-consumer aspects of ‘05 bankruptcy bill was a not-very-subtle shot across the bow to @JoeBiden, who fought for it.
That monopolies answer by Warren in her CNN townhall was killer. A master class is how to clearly explain a complex policy that’s without collapsing into jargon.— Ezra Klein (@ezraklein) April 23, 2019
The idea that Warren isn’t a charismatic speaker is insane. This is the stuff people gushed over Bill Clinton for.
