MSNBC To Host Democratic Debate Ahead Of New Hampshire Primary (Updated)

It seems we have a deal on some additional debates: MSNBC to host New Hampshire Democratic debate:

MSNBC announced Sunday that it will hold a Democratic presidential debate Thursday, Feb. 4, in New Hampshire ahead of the first-in-the-nation primary.

The debate will take place at the University of New Hampshire in Durham at 9 p.m. Eastern and be moderated by Chuck Todd and Rachel Maddow. All three Democratic presidential candidates, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont and former Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley are expected to attend.

The Democratic National Committee, which has been under pressure from voters and candidates to add more debates to the primary schedule, has said the debate will be sanctioned and is moving towards sanctioning additional debates with the agreement of the candidates.

UPDATE: Via CNN: Dem candidates to attend New Hampshire town hall:

The Democratic presidential hopefuls will make closing arguments to New Hampshire voters Wednesday during a prime-time CNN town hall in Derry -- less than one week before votes are cast in the New Hampshire primary.

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders and former Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley will each field questions from these critical voters, CNN announced Sunday. CNN Anchor Anderson Cooper will moderate the event.

The town hall will take place just two days after the Iowa caucuses, which the latest polling shows is a tight race between Clinton and Sanders.
