Clinton, Sanders to Debate in NY Before the State's Primary

The April 14 debate will be held in Brooklyn, where Sanders was born and Clinton's campaign is based

Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders have agreed to a Democratic presidential debate next week ahead of the New York primary.

Clinton holds a lead among delegates but Sanders is hoping a win in Tuesday's primary in Wisconsin will help him build momentum in Clinton's home state.

The televised debate will be held in Brooklyn, New York, on April 14, five days before the state's April 19 primary.

Both candidates have personal ties to the debate site. Sanders was born and raised in Brooklyn. Clinton represented New York in the Senate and her campaign's headquarters is based in Brooklyn.

CNN will host the debate in partnership with Time Warner Cable's NY1.
