Even though the Democratic Candidates just had their last debate on January 17, and now, about a week later, they will have another on January 25th. This is everything that is known about the Democratic Debate Date, TV Schedule for CNN, Presidential Candidates, CNN Livestream and How to Watch Online.
CNN reports that the Democratic hopefuls including Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, former Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley, and Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders will field questions from Iowa Democrats. This primetime event that isn't really a debate, but a forum event, according to US Presidential Election News.
Dr. Andy McGuire, the chair of the Iowa Democratic Party, has stated that he is "honored to partner with CNN [the host network of the event] with our three fantastic Democratic candidates." He also said, "With this event airing just one week before the first-in-the-nation Iowa caucuses, it's an incredible opportunity for Iowans to see our candidates detail their plans to move our country forward and their vision for Iowa and the nation."
The Des Moines Register reports that the three Democratic presidential candidates are scheduled to take the stage one at a time to answer questions. So far, Clinton and Sanders are locked in votes from Iowa, with Sanders leading Clinton in New Hampshire. Clinton has been seen more favorably by the Democrats in South Caroline as well as national polls.
The Democratic Debate is scheduled to take place on Monday, January 25, at Drake University in Des Moines, IA. It will air on CNN at 9 PM to 11 PM ET (Event starts at 8 PM CT, 7 PM MT, and 6 PM PT), and be moderated by CNN Anchor Chris Cuomo.
For those that want to live stream or want to know how to watch online, there is little information online on how to do that. During the Fifth Republican debate held last year, CNN was the host, and that was the second time that they showed the debate online, with no log-in or password required. While the next meeting of the Democratic candidates is more forum than it is a debate, CNN would be wise to offer that service. In other words, check CNN to see if this service of live streaming will be offered.
As for the next Democratic Primary Debate, it will take place on Thursday, February 11 at UW-Milwaukee, and it will air on PBS, moderated by Gwen Ifill and Judy Woodruff. As for the next Republican debate, it will take place at the Iowa Events Center in Des Moines on Thursday, January 28th, from 9 PM to 11 PM Eastern Time.
