CNN South Carolina Democratic Town Hall
8pm ET (7pm CT, 6pm MT, 5pm PT)

Moderator: Chris Cuomo
Report from CNN:
CNN announced it will host a Democratic town hall event in South Carolina on Tuesday from 8 p.m.-10 p.m. ET.
The event allows Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, who will take the stage first, and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who will appear last, the opportunity to answer questions from Palmetto State voters, who go to the polls on Saturday, February 27.
CNN’s Chris Cuomo will moderate the event, which will be held on the University of South Carolina’s campus.
The events will air live on CNN, CNN International and CNN en Español and be streamed live online on CNNgo.
Following Clinton’s victory in Nevada, Sanders will be hoping to stop some of her regained momentum in the Palmetto State. Up to this point, the polls are tilting heavily in favor of a strong Clinton victory in South Carolina. In fact, it may end up being the opposite of results of New Hampshire where Sanders won by almost 30 percent.
Look for Clinton to try and build on her Nevada win and make it a point that she is the democrat who can appeal to Latino voters and other minorities in a way that Bernie Sanders simply can’t. She will continue to push the argument of electability.
