The 10th Democratic presidential debate will take place Tuesday in South Carolina, days before the state’s primary election and a week before voters in 14 states go to the polls on Super Tuesday.

If the debate in Las Vegas is any indication, viewers may be in for round 2 of an event that saw former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg targeted literally from the first question of the debate.

Bloomberg was attacked by every candidate on the stage, all of whom are on the record as saying they believe the New York billionaire is trying to buy the Democratic presidential nomination.
