CNN Democratic Town Hall
8pm ET (7pm CT, 6pm MT, 5pm PT)
Live Stream: CNN.com
Location: Ohio State University in Columbus
Moderator: Jake Tapper and Roland Martin
Report from CNN:
Two days before five states hold crucial primary elections, CNN and TV One will host a nationally televised prime-time Democratic town hall at Ohio State University in Columbus.
The 8:00 p.m. ET town hall will be hosted by CNN’s Jake Tapper and TV One’s Roland Martin. Questions will come from the moderators and also from Ohio voters.
The March 13 event will serve as the closing statement in this “Super Tuesday” Democratic primary and follow a similar format of the five critically acclaimed Democratic and Republican town halls that CNN has hosted this year.
Both former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders have accepted their invitations to appear at the town hall.
The five states holding primaries on March 15 are Florida, Illinois, Missouri, North Carolina and Ohio.
Hillary Clinton is fighting hard to avoid any upsets similar to Michigan last week. Ohio, with similar demographics to Michigan, might be ripe for Sanders to pull an outside victory. Polls show the race tightening in recent days which could mean that Sanders is gaining some momentum. Of all the states voting on Tuesday, polling indicates that Ohio and Illinois will likely be the closest contests on the Democratic side, thought Clinton is favored in each state.
