The Nevada State Democratic Party announced today that it will sponsor a town hall event with Democratic presidential candidates Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders in Las Vegas, with Telemundo and MSNBC as broadcast partners. The town hall will take place on the evening of Thursday, February 18 – just two days before Nevada’s First in the West presidential caucus on Saturday, February 20.
The moderators are José Díaz-Balart from Telemundo and Chuck Todd from MSNBC. José Díaz-Balart is co-anchor of Telemundo’s “Noticiero Telemundo” and host of “Enfoque,” an anchor of MSNBC Live, and a regular anchor of Saturday editions of “NBC Nightly News.” Chuck Todd is the NBC News political director, moderator of “Meet the Press,” and anchor of MSNBC’s “MTP Daily.”
The town hall will air live on MSNBC and stream live online at MSNBC.com and NBCNews.com. Telemundo will air the Spanish-language version live on the West Coast from 6-8 p.m. PT, and in all other zones from 12 a.m.-2 a.m. ET, from 11 p.m.-1 a.m. CT and from 10 p.m.-12 a.m. MT. The Democratic town hall will also stream live online at Telemundo.com and the Telemundo News App.
Nevada’s Democratic caucuses are on Saturday, February 20 at 11 a.m. PT. Democrats allow same-day voter registration at caucus locations, and any eligible voter who will be 18 years old by Election Day (November 8, 2016) can caucus. Eligible Nevada voters can now use the NV Dems website to pre-register for the caucus and find their precinct caucus location.
