How to Watch Today’s Presidential Debate From Democrats

Tonight, 10 Democratic presidential candidates – 10 in total – will take to the stage in Houston for a third round of debate. With a significantly smaller number of participants, today’s debate will be the first time that all the candidates with the most votes will take the stage together and for a full three hours, no less.

To qualify, candidates secured donations from at least 130,000 people (and 400 donors in 20 or more states) and at least 2 percent support in four DNC- approved polls.

These qualified candidates include:

  • Former Vice President Joe Biden
  • Senator from New Jersey Corey Booker
  • South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigig
  • Former Minister of Housing and Urban Development Julian Castro
  • Senator from California Kamala Harris
  • Senator from Minnesota Amy Klobuchar
  • Former Texas representative. Beto O’Rourke
  • Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders
  • Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren
  • Entrepreneur Andrew Young

According to a recent poll , Biden remains the leader, ahead of Warren and Sanders; Meanwhile, candidates, including Hawaiian representatives. Tulsi Gabbard, New York Mayor Bill de Blasio and writer Marianne Williamson were not qualified to participate in today’s debate. As reported by ABC News , during the debate, candidates will be given one minute and 15 minutes of a second for responses and 45 seconds for rebuttals, longer responses than in the last two debates. Candidates were also asked not to swear tonight as everything will be streamed live without delay ( sorry Beto! )
