Just two days after splitting Iowa votes in two, both Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders looked for an outright win during CNN’s Town Hall in New Hampshire on Wednesday.
Anderson Cooper moderated the event with Sanders and Clinton offering their second-to-last argument before the New Hampshire’s first-in-the-nation primary.
The two candidates sparred over who’s the most progressive, big business and war.
But the real fun was on social media.
Here are some of the snarkiest, funniest and most relevant messages from Twitter as the event was going on.
