Phoenix will host a Democratic presidential debate on March 15. The announcement speaks to Arizona’s new status as a battleground state and some candidates' high-dollar spending here to woo voters.

There are still details to be sorted: The venue and, really, the participants — the debate will come after Super Tuesday primaries in 14 states, which will likely thin the field.

State Democratic Party Chair Felecia Rotellini joined The Show to tell us more about what this debate means for the state.
