Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders will debate next month in Flint, Michigan, after toxic tap water was discovered in the city. The debate will air on CNN on March 6, according to the Democratic National Committee.
That places the debate two days before the Michigan and Mississippi primaries as part of a broader deal reached by Clinton and Sanders to add more debates to the DNC schedule.
“Our Democratic candidates have run spirited campaigns focused on how to best move our country forward, and our upcoming debate in Flint, Michigan, is a critical setting to highlight what’s at stake in these elections. This debate is an opportunity to elevate the very serious issues facing the residents of Flint, and it’s also an opportunity to remind voters what Democratic leadership can do for the economy – so that everyone in America has a fair shot.”
-Debbie Wasserman Schultz, DNC chair
