Don’t have cable? Where to watch the Democratic Debate in Sacramento

It’s the Democrats’ turn to show America what they’re made of in tonight’s nationally televised presidential candidate debate. Swirling around candidates as they prepare for their first debate are talks about Hillary Clinton’s email scandal, current closest Clinton-contender Bernie Sanders, and the question if Joe Biden will decide to run. Also joining Clinton and Sanders on stage will be Martin O’Malley, Jim Webb and Lincoln Chafee–all of whom you can bet will try to make their own mark on the debate.

But what if you’re among the cord-cutting many who don’t have cable and can’t watch the debate live? We set out to find where the cable-less among us (or the political enthusiasts alike) can go to watch the Democratic Debate in Sacramento. The following pubs, restaurants, and cafes are confirmed spots to sit back and watch the showdown with friends, food, and drinks.

CNN will host the Democratic Debate, which begins at 5:30pm PST.
