Tonight is the first Democratic Presidential Debate of 2015 and the candidates are gearing up for the night. The position of the candidates’ podiums is based on the polls and the order was announced on CNN’s “State of the Union.” Hillary Clinton will be center stage with Bernie Sanders (to Clinton’s right) and Martin O’Malley (to her left) on either side of her. Jim Webb and Lincoln Chafee will be on the outside of O’Malley and Sanders. Now, the night is all about the Democrats, but Republican candidate Donald Trump will be live tweeting throughout the debate, so that should make for some additional entertainment. Trump announced it online, writing, “At the request of many, and even though I expect it to be a very boring two hours, I will be covering the Democrat Debate live on twitter!” At an event in Georgia recently, Trump stated that, “Honestly, Clinton shouldn’t be allowed to run,” so he should have some interesting words to say tonight.
Now that you’re up to speed on what to expect tonight, have a look at tonight’s schedule of events and where to watch the debate below.
