Three Democratic presidential candidates are about to try their luck at the third Democratic debate of the 2016 election season at St. Anselm College in Manchester, New Hampshire, making this the midway debate stop for Democratic candidates. Only six Democratic presidential primary debates are currently scheduled for the 2016 season.

Sponsored by ABC News, the New Hampshire Union Leader has joined the network as a co-sponsor for tonight’s debate.

Compared to Republican presidential debates, the Democratic field is tiny. Only three candidates will debate one another tonight: Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders, and Martin O’Malley.

But the spotlight is largely on two: former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders.

CBS News reported:

ABC News has said questions will focus on national security issues and foreign policy, following the deadly terror attacks in Paris and San Bernardino.

Heading into the debate, Hillary Clinton is leading the pack by wide margins, with Sanders trailing the former secretary of state by 31 points in a new ABC News/Washington Post poll.

With data breaches, law suits, and allegations of DNC favoritism towards Mrs. Clinton, this should be quite the show.
