Flint has been front and center recently over its water crisis, which has seen drinking water in the turn brown and contaminated with lead. So, expect that topic to come up in some form. Also top of mind will likley be the GOP candidate circus, namely Donald Trump's flip-flop on the use of torture by the military and the fracturing of the Republican party.

While the dem debates have not drawn as many viewers as those of their GOP rivals, the events still bring in a number of eyeballs to the network. CNN aired the first debate for the party in October, drawing a healthy 15.3 million viewers.

Clinton and Sanders will also meet up for a town hall on Fox News March 7.
