What time is Democratic presidential debate tonight: Start time, schedule, channel, live streaming details
The fourth Democratic debate is all set to be held Sunday night. There is no denying the fact that as far as the Democratic nomination is concerned, the fight seems to be on. Many had thought that Hillary was on her way to win the Democratic nomination, nonetheless the fight for primary is far from over.
Sen. Bernie Sanders seems to have thrown a tough challenge at the former secretary of state Hillary Clinton. At the beginning of the primary season no one thought Hillary will be facing such a tough challenge from a Democratic opponent.
Many had thought that the party establishment had cleared the way for her nomination. Nonetheless Sen. Bernie Sanders seems to be looking like a huge stumbling block in her way of nomination.
The debate on Sunday night is going to make things a bit clear. Will Sen. Bernie Sanders be able to stand his ground and improve his rating further, or Ms Clinton will be able to browbeat him in the course of the debate.
The fourth debate is set to be held in Charleston, South Carolina. It must be kept in mind that South Carolina holds the first-in-the-South Democratic primary on Saturday, Feb. 27. The candidates who will be participating in the 9 p.m. ET debate on Sunday are Hillary Clinton, Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vermont, and former Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley.
There is no denying the fact that all the three debaters will try their best to impress upon the Democratic fans. The debate comes as the Iowa caucuses on Feb. 1 and the New Hampshire primary on Feb. 9 draw closer. The race between Clinton and Sanders has tightened significantly in those two key states and each side has intensified attacks against the other.
Things are looking tough for both the candidates as far as Iowa Democrats primary is concerned.
