CBS 58's David Ade will be at the debate and will be giving updates starting on the CBS 58 News at 5:00 PM.
CBS News is hosting the debate in conjunction with CBS' Des Moines affiliate, KCCI, and the Des Moines Register. "Face the Nation" anchor John Dickerson will be the principal moderator, and he will be joined by CBS News Congressional Correspondent Nancy Cordes, KCCI anchor Kevin Cooney and the Des Moines Register's political columnist, Kathie Obradovich.
CBS News is also teaming up with Twitter. CBS News producers, equipped with Twitter's curation tools, will whittle down the millions of tweets about the debate and select some for use on the broadcast. The official hashtag will be #DemDebate. CBS will also be able to formulate questions for the candidates based on real-time Twitter conversations and data, with an eye to bringing to the debate stage the issues viewers are most interested in.
On stage will be former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders and former Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley. Since their last meeting on the debate stage, two of the participants, former Virginia Sen. Jim Webb and former Rhode Island Gov. and Sen. Lincoln Chafee have dropped out of the race.
A CBS News/ New York Times poll released ahead of the debate shows that Clinton enjoys a considerable lead, with support from 52 percent of Democratic primary voters nationally.
