Lineup for Detroit Democratic presidential debate finalized

Lineup for Detroit Democratic presidential debate finalized

This time, Harris, the lone black woman in the field, will be joined by another top black candidate, New Jersey Sen.

The debates were matched so that the four top-polling candidates could be spread evenly across two nights, avoiding the "first tier" and "second tier" situation Republicans faced in 2016. Bernie Sanders and Massachusetts Sen.

This will mark Gov. Bullock's first presidential debate since he was ineligible for NBC's debates last month. Booker, too, will likely see an opportunity to hit Biden over his past comments about working with segregationist senators.

This will be Bullock's debut on the Democratic debate stages, after failing to qualify for the first debates in Miami at the end of June.

Mayor Bill DeBlasio Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, Harris, former Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper, Washington Gov. Jay Inslee, Minnesota Sen.

In two recently published polls conducted after the debates, Warren had 19% support among Democratic voters, one of her best showings in polls in the early months of the campaign.

But on Thursday night, the star of the show was CNN itself, which took more than 40 minutes to pull 20 names out of boxes, documenting the drawing with bird's-eye camera angles and deputizing an eight-person panel of experts to provide analysis ("There is a luck of the draw here, literally", said analyst Gloria Berger). Elizabeth Warren and Vermont Sen. Amy Klobuchar, former Texas Rep. Beto O'Rourke, Ohio Rep. Tim Ryan, Sanders, Warren, author Marianne Williamson and businessman Andrew Yang. Both seem to be relishing their ongoing clash over health care, but they won't have a chance to duke it out on the debate stage and grab the headlines they both want. Biden, Buttigieg, Harris, Sanders and Warren have solidified their place on the stage by attaining both qualifiers.

The entry qualifications for the third debate in September will roughly double and candidates will be required to make the cut in both polling and donors, not simply one category.

The first night's debate will feature most of the Democratic field's moderate voices - alongside Sanders and Warren, the race's two top progressive candidates. Any candidate who "consistently interrupts" others will have their time reduced. Mike Gravel, Miramar, Florida Mayor Wayne Messam, Massachusetts Rep. Seth Moulton, former Pennsylvania Rep. Joe Sestak and Tom Steyer, the billionaire activist who entered the race just over a week ago. Candidates will have to register at least 2% in at least four national or statewide polls recognized by the committee and get donations from at least 130,000 unique donors, along with 400 unique donors in 20 states.
