CNN/NY1 Democratic Debate from Brooklyn
9pm ET (8pm CT, 7pm MT, 6pm PT)
Report from NY1:
The debate itself will begin at 9 p.m., and will be followed by a 90-minute post-debate show with full analysis starting at 11 p.m.
NY1 will be live throughout the night both inside and outside the debate hall at the Duggal Greenhouse.
Errol Louis, host of NY1’s “Inside City Hall”, will be among the debate panelists.
Last night, Sanders hosted a rally in Washington Square Park in front of several thousand supporters.
Sanders also spoke about Verizon workers who were on the picket line – praising them for their courage.
“Verizon is just a poster child for what so many of our corporations are doing today. And this campaign is sending a message to corporate America that you cannot have it all,” Sanders told the crowd.
Sanders also received the endorsement of the Transport Workers Union Local 100.
The union represents nearly 40,000 active workers across the five boroughs.
Hillary Clinton’s campaign also swept through the city yesterday.
The former Secretary of State held a rally with supporters in the Bronx with Borough President Ruben Diaz Junior.
She spoke about immigration, and took a shot at GOP frontrunner Donald Trump.
“Unlike Donald Trump we’re not saying some people don’t belong, we’re not saying some people are not wanted, this is a borough of immigrants, this is a city of immigrants, this is a state of immigrants in a nation of immigrants and I am proud of that,” Clinton said.
Clinton also spoke at the 25th anniversary convention for Al Sharpton’s National Action Network in Midtown.
This is likely the final Democratic debate since the New York primary is basically a make-or-break for Bernie in his quest to earn the needed delegates to win the nomination.
