The Democratic 2020 presidential hopefuls discussed topics ranging from climate change, abortion rights, gun control, immigration and much more. Not one mention was made of the former vice president, despite the fact that he still outpaces the others in polls. (RELATED: Maddow Calls Castro ‘The Only Latino’ On The Stage)

Biden was active on Twitter throughout the debate, retweeting tweets from his campaign “Team Joe” page about his upcoming participation at Thursday’s debates.
“Let’s be clear: We shouldn’t tear the Affordable Care Act down,” Biden’s campaign page tweeted Wednesday. “We should build on it. The Biden Administration will give every American the right to choose a public option like Medicare to ensure everyone has access to the quality, affordable health care they deserve.”
