Battle of Brooklyn 2016

Democrats debate in Brooklyn tonight

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.
