Today’s Action: Final debate before Super Tuesday is TONIGHT!

That’s right, it’s already time for another debate – and deservedly, because the South Carolina primary is this Saturday, almost immediately followed by Super Tuesday. Tonight is the final debate before 15 states, American Samoa, and Democrats abroad vote for their primary candidate.

This debate features the top seven candidates still running: Joe Biden, Michael Bloomberg, Pete Buttigieg, Amy Klobuchar, Bernie Sanders, Tom Steyer, and Elizabeth Warren. Read up about them in our OD Action candidate profiles!

With so many states at stake, we’re sure to hear a wide range of issues and a no-holds attitude towards policy and personal clashes alike.

Final Democratic debate before Super Tuesday…tune in TONIGHT at 8 pm EST / 5 pm PST on CBS stations, online at CBSNews.com, and a plethora of streaming services.

We’re also coming into this debate fresh off the events of the past week. Bernie Sanders has solidified his position as frontrunner on the popularity of progressive policies that, in Nevada, won the support of liberal, moderate, and conservative voters alike.

And fellow-progressive Elizabeth Warren had her highest fundraising date yet following a fiery and widely-regarded-as-winning performance at the most watched presidential debate in history. She has moved back into a tie for second-place nationwide, with Super Tuesday wins in California, Texas, Massachusetts, and other strong delegate states well in sight where her support is strong.

Regardless of who you’re pulling for – and especially if you’re still making a decision – there’s no time to waste in our thoughtful selection of the best candidate to take down Trump this November — and you can learn more about the candidates here.

Watch the Democratic debates TONIGHT at 8 pm EST / 5 pm PST on CBS stations, online at CBSNews.com, and so many streaming services.
