Senators Bernie Sanders and Ted Cruz will take part in their second debate on President Donald Trump’s tax plan on CNN tonight, Tuesday night November 28 at 9 p.m. Eastern. They will be accompanied by Sen. Maria Cantwell and Sen. Tim Scott. If you would like to watch the debate but are not near a television tonight, CNN will make it available to stream for those with a cable and satellite log-in and for those without.
Cruz and Sanders last faced off in October to debate taxes, and then faced off in February when they debated Obamcare on CNN. Tonight’s debate will be moderated by CNN anchors Jake Tapper and Dana Bash in Washington, D.C. Cruz and Sanders will also take questions from voters across the country during the town hall event. The debate is scheduled to last 90 minutes and end at 10:30 p.m. Eastern. Here’s what you need to know to access live streams of the event between the ideologically-opposed senators.
