Democratic presidential candidates Hillary Clinton and Sen. Bernie Sanders are set to debate in Brooklyn tonight, ahead of next Tuesday's New York primary and following a particularly contentious month between the formerly non-combative candidates. Since Clinton and Sanders last met on the debate stage a month ago, they have brutally hit each other on qualifications, releasing speech transcripts and tax returns, campaign finance, and more.

Thursday night's debate — which is the only scheduled debate remaining — will test whether the candidates will say what they've been saying behind each other's backs to each other's faces. The debate kicks off at 9 p.m. ET on CNN, and will be moderated by Wolf Blitzer.
