A coin toss has determined that Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton will go first during Wednesday evening’s Commander in Chief forum, hosted by the IAVA (Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America) and airing on NBC and MSNBC. 

{mosads}Clinton will take questions from moderator Matt Lauer and members of the audience — which will largely be comprised of veterans and active service members — for 30 minutes before Donald Trump takes the stage. 

Both candidates stated a preference to be the second candidate to appear. 

Dafna Linzer, managing editor for NBC News and MSNBC, performed the coin toss.

The event — which marks the first time Clinton and Trump will be on the same stage, albeit not at the same time — will be simulcast live on both networks at 8 p.m. ET.
