socialists. >> if you think any of this wonkiness is going to connect with this dark force, i >> some stress their electability in swing g states a way to break out in the crowded field. >> i can win in states like wisconsin and michigan and iowa. >> and then in texas this last year, traveling to every county, not writing anybody off, not taking anyone for granted -- >> and this may be the last time that some of these candidates are on the national debate stage. that's because next month's debate in houston has much stricter qualifications. right now only seven candidates are in. andrew yang's status is still up in the air. anne-marie? >> all right. laura podesta in detroit. thank you. overseas now where north korea reportedly fired two short-range ballistic missiles from the east coast this morning.
