The first Democratic presidential forum is next week

Rachel Maddow will host the top three Democratic presidential candidates in a forum in South Carolina on Friday.

The forum will kick off at 8pm EST on Friday the 6th of November. Participating in the debate will be former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, former Governor of Maryland Martin O’Malley and Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders.

On Friday night, candidates will take to the stage at Winthrop University’s Byrnes Auditorium where they will face questions asked by MSNBC personality Rachel Maddow.

Maddow is taking question suggestions online on her Facebook page, on Twitter using the #MSNBC2016 hashtag, or via rachel@msnbc.com on email.

“This forum will allow candidates to share their visions for our country, speak to southern specific issues and concerns, and show that Democrats are focused on giving working and middle class families an opportunity to succeed,” said SCDP Chair Jaime Harrison.

    1. Thank you. I don’t have pay cable either. I’ve been trying to get an answer about the “forum” since it was announced…the DNC never answered (surprise, surprise) Rachel Maddow never answered. I’m hoping MSNBC.com/SHIFT will stream it.

  1. Well, I certainly don’t claim to be impartial here. But by all accounts, I think Bernie really hit one out of the park last night! He was clearly in his element with this more intimate, one-on-one type of format, and came across as more relaxed, comfortable, personable, engaging, and downright witty than ever before on nationwide TV, and more so than either O’Malley or Clinton as well.

    I can’t see how this performance doesn’t help him significantly – and especially in South Carolina, where he could really use a strong boost. All in all, an excellent warm-up to next week’s second debate!
