The debate will be moderated by CNN’s Jake Tapper and Dana Bash. The debate comes as Republicans in Congress craft a plan to repeal and replace former President Obama’s signature healthcare law.

A promo for the debate aired during CNN's town hall with House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), and news quickly spread on social media.

Sanders participated in a CNN town hall earlier this month.
