CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC/AP) - Mike Bloomberg’s campaign has delayed a scheduled CNN town hall in Charleston so that he can spend more time preparing for Tuesday’s debate.

Bloomberg was scheduled to appear on CNN on Monday. But he’ll now join the network for the live question-and-answer program on Wednesday.

CNN has announced that the network will be holding two nights of town halls in Charleston featuring the leading Democratic presidential candidates at the Memminger Auditorium.

The town halls are expected to follow the same format as CNN’s previous town halls with candidates taking questions from a moderator and the audience.

CNN released the following schedule of events:

Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders will appear at 9 p.m. ET, former South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg at 10 p.m. ET, and businessman Tom Steyer at 11 p.m. ET.

On Wednesday, former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg will appear at 7 p.m. ET, former Vice President Joe Biden will appear at 8 p.m. ET, followed by Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar at 9 p.m. ET and Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren at 10 p.m. ET
