The final Democratic presidential debate of the year will be hosted Saturday night by ABC News and will feature the remaining three candidates: former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont and former Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley. Although the debate will air free nationally on ABC affiliate stations, it will also be available to “cord-cutters” for live streaming on the ABC News website and mobile app.
There will be no paywall for the live stream, according to a network spokesperson. To watch the live stream Saturday, beginning at 8 p.m. EST, click here or watch it below.
There are a few other ways to watch the debate without tuning in to a TV broadcast. ABC News’ apps on the Apple TV, Roku and Xbox One systems will also allow free streaming of the debate, according to the Observer.
Local affiliate WMUR-TV in Manchester, New Hampshire, is a collaborator in ABC News’ presidential debate, along with the New Hampshire Union Leader and Saint Anselm College, where the event is being held. The New Hampshire Democratic Party is sponsoring.
The moderators will be ABC journalists Martha Raddatz and David Muir. A third moderator, WMUR-TV anchor Josh McElveen, was reportedly removed from the roster because of a labor dispute at the station.
Among the candidates, Clinton remains the clear front-runner. Her closest challenger is Sanders, who was favored by 26 percent of voters, compared with Clinton’s 59 percent, in the latest Democratic presidential nomination poll, released Wednesday by Monmouth University in New Jersey. O’Malley polled at just 4 percent.
Recently, the Paris terror attacks in November and the San Bernardino, California, shootings this month have dominated political discourse, with Democrats and Republicans proposing strategies to prevent future attacks and detect threats of Islamic radicals. Each of the Democratic candidates released proposals for tackling climate change ahead of the accord that was struck last week by 200 nations at the global summit in Paris.
