The AZ Democratic Presidential Debate

The Arizona Debate will take place Two Days before Voters Head to the Primary Election.

The 11th Democratic Presidential Debate will take place in Phoenix on Sunday, March 15th.

The Debate will be Hosted by CNN and Univision, where Arizona is Emerging as a Battleground State.

Except for Bill Clinton in 1996, a Democrat has not carried Arizona in a presidential election since Harry Truman won the state in 1948. Donald Trump won the state over Hillary Clinton by only a few percentage points in 2016.

The Debate will air from 8 p.m. to 10 p.m. ET, and it is being held in Partnership with CHC Bold, the Political Action Committee of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus.

The Venue, Format, Moderators, and Qualification Criteria will be Announced at a later Date.

“Arizona is a battleground state, and it’s clear Democrats can win here at every level of the ballot," Democratic National Committee (DNC) Chair Tom Perez said in the News Release Announcing the Debate. "After historic Democratic victories in 2018, we’re putting the Republicans on defense in the Grand Canyon State."

"This debate will showcase our Democratic presidential candidates, highlight Trump’s record of broken promises and make it clear that Democrats are fighting to give Arizonans a better future,” Perez said.

The Debate comes at about the Midway Point in the Democratic Nominating Process and will be Preceded by the Debate on Feb. 25th in Charleston, South Carolina, hosted by CBS News and the Congressional Black Caucus Institute.
