Nevada Democratic Presidential Debate

This Debate will be held Tuesday January 15th beginning 9:00 PM EST and 6:00 PM PST.

It will be televised by MSNBC from Cashman Center in Las Vegas - they are also going to asking some questions submitted to them online from the voters. You can submit your question here: The Nevada caucus is Saturday January 19th.

The moderator will be Brian Williams and Tim Russert will also be asking questions. Natalie Morales will be asking the questions submitted by the viewers.

This Debate will feature Senators Barrack Obama (Ill.) and Hillary Clinton (N.Y.) and former North Carolina Senator and Vice Presidential candidate John Edwards. Congressman Dennis Kucinich (Oh.) was originally invited and then had the invite rescinded. I believe Kucinich should have been included in the Debate. However, this should be a fun one to watch with only three candidates answering questions.

Nevada is a state which has a 40% minority population primarily Hispanic and African-American. They were awarded by the Democratic National Committee (DNC) the designation of being the "First in the West" as the DNC added two states in January to the Democratic Party primary calendar. The other is S. Carolina which will be on January 29th.

The Debate is co-sponsored by the U.S. Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, IMPACTO, 100 Black Men of America, African American Democratic Leadership Council, and College of Southern Nevada To learn more about each of these organizations click here:

Make sure you tune in and hey, try submitting a question - it may be asked on the air!
