PHILADELPHIA (KYW Newsradio) — This week on Flashpoint: Host and KYW Community Affairs reporter Cherri Gregg asks the burning questions about the Democrats' fight for a party candidate, with a look ahead to Super Tuesday. 

Just days ago, Democrats took the stage in Nevada, joined for the first time, by presidential campaign newcomer former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg. The gloves were off as the candidates teamed up to take Bloomberg out. Who were the winners and losers? Do the early primary contests provide any real insight on who will become the Democratic party nominee? Will the attacks have a detrimental effect on the candidates? 

We discuss the nomination process and provide predictions with veteran KYW special correspondent Larry Kane, political analyst David Dix and Represent PA executive director Christine Jacobs.

Pennsylvania Rep. Chris Rabb
The newsmaker of the week is exoneree compensation. The issue has been in the news as victims of wrongful conviction seek justice. Pennsylvania Rep. Chris Rabb has a proposal he plans to introduce in the state legislature this spring.
The Patriot Homecare Changemaker is Women Against Abuse. Executive Director Jeannine Lisitski discusses the upcoming Dish It Up fundraiser set to take place March 19, 2020 at Lincoln Financial Field. Former Eagles cornerback and child abuse survivor Troy Vincent is the honoree.
