Call it the Battle of Brooklyn. Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders will converge on the famed New York borough Thursday evening for their first face-to-face debate since the beginning of March.
This particular debate is of great importance as the pair vie for the New York primary vote next Tuesday. Vermont Sen. Sanders was born in Brooklyn and his democratic-socialist views appeal to many of the liberal city's younger voters; Clinton, meanwhile, has her campaign headquarters in the heart of the borough and served one-and-a-half terms as a U.S. senator from the Empire State. She currently leads most polling in the state.
The two-hour debate will air live on CNN, starting at 9 p.m. ET, from the Duggal Greenhouse at the Brooklyn Navy Yard. Wolf Blitzer will serve as the lead moderator; CNN's chief political correspondent Dana Bash and NY1 host Errol Louis will assist in asking questions.
Those without a television can live-stream the debate on CNN.com and via the cable channel's mobile and streaming platforms. No cable authentification will be required for the debate stream. TV viewers can also catch the event on CNN International and CNN en Español.
Satellite radio subscribers can listen to the debate live on SiriusXM channel 116.
