What time is the Democratic debate tonight: Start time, schedule, channel, MSNBC February 4 debate, how to watch live
After Iowa caucus on February 2, Democratic fans will not have to wait till February 11 for a debate to see their top two presidential contenders confront each other. Instead a new democratic debate has been planned and it is being held on February 4.
MSNBC is all set to host New Hampshire Democratic debate on Feb. 4. As the two Democratic presidential hopefuls Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders failed to knock out each other in Iowa caucuses or even manage a win based on points, the New Hampshire debate is going to be very important.
The socialist Bernie Sandersâ€™ appeal among Democratic supporters is on the rise. It is amazing to see the 74-year old Senator from Vermont being so popular among the young Democrats. He is a clear favorite among the people in age group of less than 35, while a bit younger Hillary Clinton is popular among older Democratic fans.
In the meantime MSNBC is all set to organize the first democratic debate of the month. It is going to sponsor the next Democratic presidential debate on Feb. 4, Thursday. The event is set to take place at the University of New Hampshire in Durham and will start 9 p.m. Eastern.
As far as moderators of the event are concerned, Political Director for NBC News Chuck Todd and former radio host Rachel Maddow have been tasked to moderate the discussions. Now as former Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley is out of the race he will not be part of it. Now the dais will be shared by Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
The debate was earlier not in the schedule. but now it has been given official confirmation. Earlier this week, the campaigns of Democratic front-runners Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders had agreed to attend in four more debates, with a condition that they were sanctioned by the Democratic National Committee (DNC), according to BuzzFeed News. In the latest developments, New York Times reported that DNC will meet with the Democratic candidates on Tuesday to discuss the next set of debates. It is reported that they will talk about the schedule and location of the four more debates, which will most likely happen in March, April, and May.
The first debate of the month will happen on Thursday, Feb. 4 at the University of New Hampshire in Durham. MSNBC will broadcast the event live starting 9:00 p.m. (ET). Viewers can also see the event via online streaming.
