Transcript for Audio captures post-debate confrontation between Sanders, Warren
George, we'll turn now to the race for the white house. Those rising tensions between Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders captured in new tapes of their post-debate confrontation where they call each other linsey Davis is here with the latest. Good morning. Boy, people were trying to read lips for nearly 24 hours, the moment that happened after the debate was replayed and analyzed to determine what was said in that terse exchange when senator Sanders' handshake was not reciprocated by senator Warren.
