ANALYSIS: Sanders struggles to gain edge in presidential bid

MANCHESTER, New Hampshire (AP) -- The third Democratic presidential debate opened with an apology and ended with compliments.

For months, the Democratic primary contest has been a relatively civil affair -- which party leaders believe offers a much-needed contrast with the raucous Republican field.

A day after a rancorous dispute over a breach of private campaign data by Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders' campaign roiled the Democratic Party, a political truce between Hillary Clinton and Sanders largely held -- even as Sanders' aides seemed itching for a more aggressive confrontation with the front-runner.

"I apologize to Secretary Clinton," said Sanders. "This is not the type of campaign that we run."

Clinton accepted his apology, instead, keeping her criticism carefully aimed at her Republican rivals -- particularly businessman Donald Trump.
