It’s the final Democratic debate before the Iowa caucuses next month, and the leading candidates are getting a chance to speak directly to those who will be casting a vote.
Tuesday night’s debate is taking place at Drake University in Iowa’s capital of Des Moines.
It’s the seventh debate of the campaign season so far, and it has the smallest field yet. The Democratic National Committee has been steadily raising the polling and fundraising thresholds needed to make each debate.
CNN is hosting the debate in partnership with The Des Moines Register.
