20 Democratic hopefuls will debate over two nights.
The first Democratic debate of the 2020 presidential election will take place on June 26 and 27, 2019. There are currently 25 candidates vying for the Democratic nomination, and 20 of them met the Democratic National Committee’s criteria to participate in the first debate: to have either 65,000 individual campaign donors, including at least 200 donors each in 20 states, or at least 1 percent support in at least three polls.
Due to the unusually high number of candidates, the DNC broke up the debate into two nights, and 10 candidates will participate on each night.
Wednesday night’s debate lineup includes Elizabeth Warren, Cory Booker, Julián Castro, Amy Klobuchar, Beto O’Rourke, Tulsi Gabbard, Jay Inslee, Bill de Blasio, and Tim Ryan.
Thursday night’s debate lineup includes Joe Biden, Bernie Sanders, Kamala Harris, Pete Buttigieg, Kirsten Gillibrand, Michael Bennet, John Hickenlooper, Eric Swalwell, Marianne Williamson, and Andrew Yang.
Here, you’ll find everything you need to know about the first debate.
