Moderator: Anderson Cooper
Report from Newsweek:
The two remaining Democratic candidates will participate in a CNN town hall in New Hampshire on Wednesday to state their cases less than a week before Granite State residents cast their votes in the nation’s first primary.
Coming off of her win in the Iowa caucuses on Monday night, front-runner Hillary Clinton, along with her sole Democratic challenger, Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders, will field questions from voters in New Hampshire during the prime-time event ahead of the state’s primary on February 9. Recent polling and the outcome of the caucuses show the two candidates remain in a tight race.
Clinton secured 49.9 percent of the delegate count in Iowa, while Sanders won 49.6 percent. The results were the closest in state Democratic caucus history. Former Maryland Governor Martin O’Malley, who was at odds with the Democratic National Committee (DNC) over its debate schedule throughout his campaign, dropped out of the race on Monday night after a dismal showing in Iowa. He failed to gain more than 1 percent of support among caucusgoers.
There is also tentatively a debate scheduled for Thursday night on MSNBC, however, Bernie Sanders has said he may not participate in it unless Hillary Clinton agrees to more debates down the road. It looks like the event is still set to happen at this point.
Sanders has agreed to the February 4 debate.
