#DemDebate is On

After two – loud, chaotic and political – hours of prepetation, the Brooklyn Debate is finally on. And while Hillary and Bernie get right into it on stage, the spin room is quiet for the first time today.


In fact, it feels like we are all back in high school during a dictation. 

No time to wait for transcripts here. Even NBC’s Andrea Mitchell herself types along meticously. Don’t want to miss anything after all.

“If you both scream over each other, the viewers won’t hear what you are saying.” – favorite Wolf Blitzer line in the press room 

Two Hours Until #DemDebate

It’s two hours until the Brooklyn Democratic Debate, time for an update.  

The Hillary supporters got here at 1 already, so they scored the two main corners leading into the Navy Yard.  
But Bernie seems to have fans inside the factories, like this stone company.

Meanwhile the spin room is filling up. While we are waiting for the action to begin, there is plenty of things to keep 600 journalists busy. Like try out the food trucks.

Or play celebrity spotting, journalism edition. I am actually sitting only one row behind Andrea Mitchell.

And then there is plenty of campaign surrogates to talk to. This is the list of everybody representing Sanders tonight. 

And here is Hillary Clinton’s press secretary trying to talk to everybody at the same time. He hopes the party will unite once all of this is over. 


Look at #DemDebate Set

I just finished the press walk trough the set of tonight’s Democratic Debate. 



CNN says that – after the long back and forth between Sanders and Clinton- this is the shortest time they have ever had to pull off a debate and build a set.


The set is housed in a glasshouse in the Brooklyn Navy Yard, where warships were build during WW2. 

Outside you have a beautiful view of the Williamsburg Bridge.


Brooklyn Debate Is On

After very (very) long discussions and speculations, it will actually happen: Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders will spare off in a Brooklyn debate.

When: April 14, 9:00-11:00 pm

Where: Duggal Greenhouse on the Brooklyn Navy Yard

Who is hosting: CNN and NY1

Who knows, maybe they will even settle the question who the real New Yorker is? Sanders who was born in Brooklyn or Clinton who serves as the state’s senator and has her campaign headquarters in the borough?
