- The Democratic presidential hopefuls will make closing arguments to Iowa voters Monday night during a CNN town hall in Des Moines
- It comes one week before the first-in-the-nation votes are cast at the Iowa caucuses
Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont will appear first, followed by ex-Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley and then former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, CNN announced Monday. Each will have 30 minutes onstage at Drake University's Sheslow Auditorium and will face questions from audience members as well as CNN Anchor Chris Cuomo.
The Iowa Democratic Party and Drake University invited the audience, which will also include some CNN guests.
This event comes as Clinton tries to brush back a surprisingly strong challenge from Sanders.
The forum will air on CNN from 9 p.m. to 11 p.m. ET.
The Town Hall will also be live-streamed online and across mobile devices via CNNgo. CNN International and CNN en Espanol will also simulcast the Town Hall.
