Tonight's Democratic presidential primary debate will be held at 9 pm. at Miami-Dade College in Florida. Sponsors are Univision, The Washington Post, and Facebook.

Held before a mostly Latino audience, the match will be broadcast live on Univision and CNN. The moderators are Univision's Maria Elena Salinas and Jorge Ramos, as well as Karen Tumulty of The Washington Post.

The Republicans had a Telemundo debate before Super Tuesday, but only after a long hot feud with NBC over "unfair questions" at the CNBC debate earlier in the campaign season. No such feuding has occurred from the Democratic side.

And yes, CBS has decided to run the "Victoria's Secret Swim Special" opposite the Telemundo debate. Sigh.

Debate open thread below....
