Bernie Sanders and State Hillary Clinton have finally agreed to one more debate, which will be held in Brooklyn, before the New York Democratic primary. Brooklyn is where Sanders grew up and where Clinton’s campaign headquarters is, which benefits both parties.

The DNC-sanctioned debate will be aired on CNN on April 14 from 9 p.m. to 11 p.m. ET. Five days later will be the New York primaries.
Sanders had wanted a debate before these primaries, but Clinton was reluctant to it at first. Originally Sanders had a rally scheduled that day in New York that had to be moved. “Fortunately, we were able to move a major New York City rally scheduled for April 14 to the night before,” Sanders spokesman Michael Briggs said.
