The 2020 presidential blbate season kicks off on Wednesday evening in Miami, Florida, as ten Democrats will take the stage with many needing the debates to stay relevant. To qualify for the first round of debates, Democrats needed to get 1% support in three sanctioned polls or get 65,000 unique donors.
Lester Holt, Chuck Todd, Savannah Guthrie, Jose Diaz Balart, and Rachel Maddow will be the moderators for the NBC debate, and Breitbart News’ Joel Pollak is on the ground at the debate site.
The first round of debates will be like training camp in sports—they will matter most to Democrats who must avoid being cut while frontrunners will only have to avoid season-ending injuries. To qualify for the next round of debates, Democrats will need to get 2% support in three sanctioned polls and get 130,000 unique donors.
On Wednesday, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), former Rep. Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke (D-TX), former San Antonio Mayor and Housing and Urban Development Secretary Julian Castro, Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ), Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-MN), Washington Governor Jay Inslee, Rep. Tim Ryan (D-OH), Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI), New York Mayor Bill de Blasio, and former Rep. John Delaney (D-MD) will be on the stage.
On Thursday, former Vice President Joe Biden, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), Mayor Pete Buttigieg (South Bend, Indiana), Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA), entrepreneur Andrew Yang, former Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper, Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA), Sen, Michael Bennet (D-CO), and spiritual adviser Marianne Williamson will debate. HERE.
