On the evening of September 12th, Univision — in partnership with ABC News — hosted the third Democratic debate, held at Texas Southern University. The 10 candidates took questions from four moderators, including Univision's Jorge Ramos. The debate, which was broadcast live with a simultaneous Spanish language translation, is part of Univision's nearly decade-long effort to bring American elections to the Hispanic community, in Spanish. As such, this event followed Univision's hosting of a March 2016 Democratic primary debate between Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders, as well as a 2012 "Meet the Candidates" event, featuring Mitt Romney and Barack Obama.
