DemDaily: Tonight’s Battle for the Ballot & The Count!

April 14, 2016

New York is the setting for tonight's battle for the ballot, with dueling events hosted by CNN and MSNBC.

Both broadcasts are a lead-up to NewYork's April 19th primaries, where a critical 247 Democratic and 95 Republican delegates are at stake.

CNN & NY1 will host Democratic candidates Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton in Brooklyn for their 9th debate. Much has happened in the month since their last match up in Miami. While HRC still has a sizable lead in delegates, Sanders has won 7 out of the last 8 primary contests.

Not to be outdone, MSNBC is hosting back-to-back townhalls with Republicans Ted Cruz and John Kasich.
