Democrats Convene in Town Hall on CNN Tonight

CNN will air a Democratic town hall live from Iowa tonight (Monday) at 9 p.m. ET. The final pitch to Iowa voters comes during an event at Drake University's Sheslow Auditorium in Des Moines a week before the presidential campaign's first votes are cast at the state's 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 said Monday, amid a tightening in opinion polls between the top two candidates. Each will have 30 minutes onstage 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. The town hall will also be live-streamed online and across mobile devices via CNNgo, the network said. CNN International and CNN en Espanol will also simulcast the town hall.
