Democratic presidential candidates Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders will face off for the second time in four days Wednesday night at Miami Dade College in Miami. The debate location gives the candidates a chance to appeal to Florida voters before the state offers up 246 delegates in its primary next week.
So far, Clinton is significantly ahead of Sanders in the delegate count, but the Vermont senator vows he will stay in the race until the convention, and his campaign has emphasized that it is ready for a long slog. Sanders scored a big symbolic win in Michigan Tuesday, just one day before the debate, but he effectively tied Clinton in delegates there and she took home a large win in Mississippi, putting her farther ahead in the count. The former secretary of state has scored big wins in Southern states with many black voters and large delegate counts, while Sanders has typically fared better in small, whiter states that hold caucuses.
Sanders has struggled to win over minority voters, often ceding those groups to Clinton by overwhelming margins. In Florida, Clinton holds a wide lead in state polling, but both candidates have been highlighting their support for immigration reform and criticizing one another’s records on the topic.
Immigration will surely be an issue during Wednesday’s debate given the involvement by Univision, the Spanish-language TV network. This could give Sanders another opportunity to make headway among Latino voters.
