Ready or not, Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders will go head-to-head Sunday evening as the stage for the next Democratic debate is set.
The debate, which was originally scheduled to take place in Arizona with a live audience in attendance, will now be held in CNN’s live studio in Washington, D.C without an audience.
