The remaining two Democratic presidential candidates—Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders—will meet once again for the seventh Democratic debate on 6 March from Flint, Michigan. The candidates will take the stage just days after Super Tuesday and in the midst of a fierce battle in several states over the weekend.
A day before the debate, Clinton and Sanders will be focused on Kansas, Nebraska and Louisiana, where voters will be caucusing and voting for their chosen candidates. As they debate in Michigan, voters in Maine will caucus to choose the party's nominee. Clinton will be hoping for additional wins, after Super Tuesday left her ahead with 1,052 delegates to Sanders's 427.
The CNN-hosted debate will air live from Flint, Michigan, centre of a massive water crisis that has affected the largely black and poor residents of the city. Both Clinton and Sanders have made the Flint water crisis a key issue of their campaigns, with Sanders even calling for the resignation of Michigan Governor Rick Snyder.
The debate, which will also take place two hours away from Kalamazoo, could focus on the issue of gun violence. On 20 February, Kalamazoo was hit by a shooting rampage that left six people dead. The two candidates have previously argued over Sanders's record on gun control, CNN noted.
Where and When
The post-Super Tuesday Democratic debate will begin broadcast live at 8pm EST/1am GMT from Flint, Michigan. The debate is hosted by CNN and will be moderated by Anderson Cooper, with help from Don Lemon and Dana Bash. The Flint Journal/MLive is the local media debate for the upcoming debate. The debate will also include questions from voters in Michigan.
