The Democratic Party held its 10th Democratic debate on Tuesday night from South Carolina, bringing voters another chance to see candidates ahead of the primary vote this weekend.

The debate had a number of moments between the candidates, which included former Vice President Joe Biden, former New York Mayor Mike Bloomberg, former South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg, Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren and businessman Tom Steyer.

The candidates talked over each other consistently, but there were some big moments. Biden stood out during the debate with firm stances and dishing out hard lines. Bloomberg didn’t do as bad as in the last debate, opening up more with failed jokes. Sanders didn’t offer the best answers throughout the night, but he certainly warranted a lot of attention. And Elizabeth Warren took off right where she left off, attacking candidates.

Social media was active throughout the night with reactions. Here’s a rundown.
