The 2016 presidential race is heating up as Tuesday marks the first Democratic debate.

The five candidates set to go head-to-head are Former Sec. of State Hillary Clinton, Former Sen. Jim Webb (VA), Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), Former Gov. Martin O’Malley (MD), Former Gov. Lincoln Chafee (RI) and possibly, Vice President Joe Biden. Although Vice President Biden hasn't decided whether or not he'll run, CNN has prepared an open podium with his name on it, just in case.

The showdown will be held in Las Vegas and candidates are expected to tackle hot topics such as immigration, Black Lives Matter, gun violence, the Iraq war and marriage equality. Even though the debate, set to air tonight at 8:30pm ET on CNN, will clear up a lot of questions voters have about each candidate, many expect it to be a lot less entertaining than the Donald Trump-dominated GOP debates.
