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. The change in debate location and decision to go without a live audience comes after President Trump declared a National Emergency over the coronavirus pandemic.

Many thought the debate wouldn't even happen following last Tuesday's primary results. Biden won Michigan by a landslide, a state Sanders and his campaign made a huge push in.
