Presidential hopefuls Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders will debate one-on-one for the first time on Thursday, just days before the race to be the Democratic Party's 2016 presidential nominee closes in on its second contest — this time in New Hampshire.
The debate, which will be moderated by MSNBC's Rachel Maddow and Chuck Todd, will air live from the University of New Hampshire in Durham beginning at 9 p.m. ET. Fresh off her photo-finish win in Iowa, Clinton faces strong competition from Sanders in the Granite State, which borders his home in Vermont.
