“I really think the way that Mayor Pete articulates his vision and his thoughtfulness in his answers is pretty remarkable," said Kris Brown, President of Brady.

While so far there hasn't been a clear winner, there does seem to be a top three.

“I think all of the candidates tonight did a very good job of course the field is crowded," Brown said.

Meyers listed her top three.

“It was Elizabeth Warren, Pete Buttigieg, and Bernie Sanders," Meyers said.
