It will air from 8 p.m. ET to 10 p.m. ET. Additional information, including moderators, venue and criteria, will be released at a later date, organizers said.The debate will take place two days before the Arizona Democratic primary, as well as the delegate-rich contests in Florida, Illinois and Ohio.Visit CNN's Election Center for full coverage of the 2020 race"Arizona is a battleground state and it's clear Democrats can win here at every level of the ballot," DNC Chairman Tom Perez said. "After historic Democratic victories in 2018, we're putting the Republicans on defense in the Grand Canyon State. This debate will showcase our Democratic presidential candidates, highlight Trump's record of broken promises and make it clear that Democrats are fighting to give Arizonans a better future."The debate will air exclusively live on CNN, CNN en Espa├▒ol, CNN International and Univision. It will stream live in its entirety, without requiring log--in to a cable provider, on CNN.com's homepage, across mobile devices via CNN's apps for iOS and Android, and via CNNgo apps for Apple TV, Roku, Amazon Fire, Chromecast and Android TV, as well as Univision's digital properties. The audio of the debate will also stream on CNN's channels on Amazon Echo, SiriusXM and Westwood One Radio Network.The announcement comes as the Democratic race heats up. Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders won the New Hampshire primary Tuesday night, but former South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg pulled even with him in the state's delegate count, CNN estimates, giving Buttigieg a slight edge in the overall delegate count so far.For the next two weeks, the race shifts to Nevada, where the caucuses will take place on February 22, and then South Carolina, which will hold its primary on February 29. The final two early-state contests bring the party's diverse base of Latino and African American voters into the fold. The most delegates are up for grabs in March, however.The DNC scheduled 12 debates for the party's 2020 presidential contest. So far, eight have taken place, and two are scheduled for later in February.
