Miners fighting for healthcare prepare for huge rally

. - Greetings from the WBRC FOX6 Newsroom! This is Jonathan Hardison with a look at the stories we're working on for you tonight.

Democratic debate

Like many of you are, we're busy tonight watching the Democratic presidential debate and following the reactions on social media. Tonight our Vanessa Araiza is camped out at the watch party hosted by the Young Democrats group in Birmingham. What do they think of Hillary, Bernie, or even the idea of the candidate not there, Joe Biden? She's live starting on WBRC FOX6 News at 9 with some instant reaction.

Rally time
Plus we're live on WBRC FOX6 News at 10 in west Alabama where Walter Energy workers at the Brookwood mine site are preparing for a massive rally tomorrow that they hope will include a crowd of thousands. These workers say retirees' healthcare benefits are in danger of disappearing amid the company's bankruptcy proceedings.

Those stories and more beginning at 9 on WBRC FOX6 News. I hope you'll watch us on air, online at WBRC.com, or in the WBRC News app by clicking "Live Newscasts" in the menu.
