With the Florida primary upon us, all eyes are on the Sunshine State.

Wednesday night, the Democrats will debate at Miami-Dade College. Univision and CNN will broadcast the debate from the college’s Kendall campus.

The debate, which starts at 9 p.m., will feature Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders and Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

Clinton has a big lead over Sanders with a margin of more than 600 delegates.

Before Thursday’s Republican debate at the University of Miami, Sen. Marco Rubio and Senator Ted Cruz will hold rallies in Miami-Dade County.

This will be Cruz’s first campaign visit to the Sunshine State this year. Analysts say Cruz is trying to steal support from Rubio.

Cruz says a vote for Rubio is a vote for Trump.  Tthe Texas senator hopes to turn the Republican Primary into a two-way race between he and Trump.

Thursday’s Republican debate in Coral Gables begins at 8:30 p.m. and will air on CNN.
