Miami Dade College has been confirmed to host the national democratic presidential debate next year in March at the Kendal Campus, in partnership with Univision Network and the Washington Post.

The key debate will take place just weeks after decisive democratic primaries in Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina and will be geared toward Hispanic voters, capitalizing on its location in predominantly-Hispanic Miami Dade College and in the large suburb of Kendall, where 63 percent of residents are Hispanic.

The Democratic National Committee and debate organizers Univision and the Washington Post will host the debate in the Building 7 Gymnasium at the Kendall Campus. The debate will be the last of six Democratic candidate debates.
