In one of the more awkward and bizarre happenings you’ll see in a debate, Saturday’s Democratic presidential debate on ABC restarted without frontrunner Hillary Clinton following a commercial break and continued for over a minute until she returned to the stage. 

Returning from break with much of the audience not yet back in their seats, co-moderator David Muir worked around that by first remarking to viewers that: “Welcome back tonight. As you can see, we have a packed audience here in New Hampshire, and we're going to continue.”
