The feuding will likely expand to include almost every candidate on stage.
Still, the controversy is likely to revive anxiety among Democrats about whether - almost four years after Hillary Clinton lost her White House bid - voters are willing to support another woman running for president. Billionaire Tom Steyer will have to answer criticism that he's buying his way to the White House.
