The three leading Democratic contenders for president will face off in their third debate of the campaign. Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, and former Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley will appear on stage in New Hampshire Saturday night for first time since the San Bernardino shootings.

The latest Republican debate, held earlier this week in Las Vegas, drew higher ratings than expected. Democratic strategists wonder if a Saturday night event, along with a more established field, mean fewer folks will watch.

Here & Now's Jeremy Hobson talks with Democratic Party strategist Angela Rye of IMPACT Strategies about her thoughts on tomorrow's debate.
