LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA — Glaringly absent from the spin room after Thursday’s Democratic debate were frontrunners Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders and former Vice President Joe Biden.

But their biggest rival Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren made time for reporters, along with South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg, Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar, businessman Tom Steyer and entrepreneur Andrew Yang.

Billionaire Tom Steyer insisted to the Daily Caller that he didn’t waste his personal millions lobbying for Trump’s impeachment, despite knowing it would likely get knocked down in the Senate.

“The American people will see how corrupt he is, and in fact I think this changes everything for him. So I have not for a second thought that it was a waste to stand up for democracy and truth,” Steyer said.

WATCH:

Yang responded that Elizabeth Warren “is very open about what she wants to do” when asked by the Daily Caller if he was worried about Warren’s plans to divide big tech companies.

WATCH:

Sanders surrogate Nina Turner told the Daily Caller that the primary difference between Warren and Sanders is that Sanders has maintained a consistent message on the issues.

“He has been fighting this fight for a long time. He didn’t just start to get on picket lines because he was running for president. He is still constant and strong for Medicare-for-all. He doesn’t change his position when things are not polling well.” Turner said. (RELATED: Here Is Everything You Missed During Thursday Night’s Democratic Debate)
