BROOKLYN, NY (WLNS) – Their eighth debate is in the books and there were some heated moments.

Democratic Presidential Candidates Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders went on the offensive trying to win over the hearts of New York voters.

Those voters have the weekend to process what they heard in Brooklyn then will head to the polls on Tuesday for their primary election.

The pair squared off on gun control, climate change, fracking and national security.

Clinton hinted that Sanders had big ideas but might not be able to implement them, while Sanders said her track record in office didn’t match up with democratic ideals.

“And I question her judgment about running Super PACS which are collecting tens of millions of dollars from special interests”, said Sanders, “Including $15 million from Wall Street.”

Hillary Clinton backfired and said, “When asked about a number of foreign policy issues, he could not answer about Afghanistan, about Israel, about counterterrorism.”

Clinton went into the debate with a 10 point lead in the polls for New York.

Both candidates claimed the state as their home with Clinton having twice served as its Senator, while Sanders grew up in New York City as a child.
