Washington Week

Trump, Cruz dominate GOP debate; Democratic race tightens

Video duration: 24:13Video has closed captioning.

In the first Republican presidential debate of 2016, frontrunners Donald Trump and Ted Cruz traded jabs over Cruz's eligibility for the nation's top job because of his Canadian birth and what Cruz means by "New York values." On the Democratic side, with two weeks until the Iowa caucuses, the race between Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders has tightened in critical first states.
