The Democratic presidential candidates took the stage for their third debate over the weekend.

The topic at hand was national security and other domestic issues, but what many tuned in to see how frontrunner Hillary Clinton and challenger Bernie Sanders would deal with the revelation that the Sanders’ campaign stole voter information from Clinton’s camp.

After the accusations surfaced, the Democratic National Committee punished the Sanders campaign by barring it from accessing accessing a trove of information on potential voters. In response, Sanders’ campaign filed a lawsuit against the Democratic Party.

How would the breach impact the race?
