LANSING, Mich. — The second night of the Democratic Presidential Debate is set to begin Wednesday night.

The debate features candidates Former Vice President Joe Biden and Senator Kamala Harris, who had a tense match-up over race at the last debate.

Harris was critical of Biden's opposition to a federal busing policy in the 1970's.

Race is expected to be a hot button issue Wednesday night.

On Tuesday night, the candidates touched on the topic, but didn't spend too much time on it.

Harris and Senator Corey Booker will likely target Biden who is leading the polls.

"I think Biden is the guy to beat right now and I think he'll be the one everyone will be going after once the field starts narrowing down," Josh Hovey said.

Senators Kirsten Gillibrand and Michael Bennet, Representative Tulsi Gabbard, Mayor Bill De Blasio and Gov. Jay Inslee will also be speaking Wednesday night.

The debate is set to begin at 8 p.m.
