With two weeks remaining before the New York primary, Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton held a town hall meeting in Brooklyn Tuesday.

Clinton organized a 'Women for Hillary' town hall with Democratic Rep. Yvette Clarke and New York First Lady Chirlane McCray at Medgar Evers College.

The focus was the family and issues that affect women, including equal pay, paid family leave and access to abortion.

As the New York campaign heats up, Clinton and rival Bernie Sanders have agreed to debate at the Brooklyn Navy Yard on April 14th.

Entering Tuesday's Wisconsin primary, Clinton has 1,243 delegates among Democrats to Sanders' 980 based on primaries and caucuses. When including superdelegates, or party officials who can back any candidate, Clinton holds an even wider lead - 1,712 to Sanders' 1,011. It takes 2,383 delegates to win the Democratic nomination.

Sanders would need to win 67 percent of the remaining delegates and uncommitted superdelegates to catch up to Clinton. So far, he's only winning 37 percent.
