It’s down to just Hillary Clinton, 68, and Bernie Sanders, 74, in the Democratic party, and the stakes are higher than ever! Just hours before the primary in South Carolina, Hillary and Bernie will take part in a high-tension Town Hall meeting in Columbia, SC, which will be broadcast at 8:00pm EST on CNN. Click through for information about the primary event!
Hillary and Bernie have their work cut out for them, not only vying for victory in South Carolina, but trying to once again prove to the entire nation that they’re the most worthy candidate for the democratic nomination. Who will succeed? The Town Hall meeting will air on CNN from 8:00pm to 10:00pm EST. But those of us without cable are in luck: you’ll be able to watch the debate via live stream online on CNN’s site!
The Town Hall, hosted by New Day‘s Chris Cuomo, is the last meeting between the candidates before Super Tuesday, which happens on March 1. During this significant day in the primary election cycle, 12 states and American Samoa will hold primaries and caucuses. This is their final chance to raise their voices, loud and proud, and hopefully sway some voters in their direction. Of course, whomever wins the South Carolina primary gets a chance for a roaring speech, too!
The candidates have just come off the Nevada caucuses, where Hillary proved victorious. Since then, Bernie has sharpened his blows against her, blasting her practice of accepting payment for speeches at Wall Street firms. Hillary’s vowed that she doesn’t support Wall Street, and Bernie wants to know why she took their money! They’ll also be discussing a pertinent issue: winning the African-American vote. Hillary believes she has the vote cinched, but as with anything in this election, everything’s a surprise. Bernie has been campaigning hard in South Carolina, and may have a compelling presence at the Town Hall.
Of course there’s also going to be some mention of Donald Trump, even if the candidates want to avoid it. With Trump fresh off winning the South Carolina primary by a landslide, and heading to the Nevada caucus this same night as the Town Hall, he’s going to be in the back of everyone’s minds.
