Hillary Clinton pledged to prevent Republicans from rolling back progressive policies in Washington. Martin O’Malley came out firing against Donald Trump and Ted Cruz. And Bernie Sanders called for a political revolution to “end oligarchy in this country.”
The divergent approaches were on display in Las Vegas, where the candidates tried to distinguish themselves during a dinner forum hosted by Sen. Harry Reid (D-Nev.).
It was a rowdy night. The room was packed with Clinton and Sanders supporters, who set up on opposite sides of the room and tried to drown out one another with cheering, air horns and vuvuzelas. (The shrill honking from the Sanders camp was so loud and insistent, even their chosen candidate tried to get them to tone it down during his speech.)
