Familiarize yourself with the Democratic presidential candidates before they take the dais for the first debate tonight. There’s Hillary Rodham Clinton, of course, and by now you’ve probably heard of Bernie Sanders. What about the others?

There’s Martin O’Malley, former Maryland governor and Baltimore mayor; Jim Webb, former U.S. senator from Virginia, secretary of the Navy, best-selling author, screenwriter and Emmy Award-winning journalist; and Lincoln Chafee, former U.S. senator, governor of Rhode Island and mayor of Warwick, R.I.

Click on the links above or titles below to read about the Democratic contenders. We’ve also created two Collections to help you get to know them: The Debate: Bernie and The Others, and The Debate: Hillary, which you can find on the Highlights screen of the Texture app. We update the Collections daily.
