Even with the 2020 elections nearly one year out, tensions are high as Democrats battle amongst themselves for the DNC nomination. The very first Dem debate hosted 20 candidates, which has now been whittled down to 10 with few signs of the playing field thinning out before the turn of the year. The next DNC debate, hosted by CNN and The New York Times, is on Nov. 20.
Here’s the rundown on who will appear on stage next week.
- Former Vice President Joe Biden
- Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ)
- South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg
- Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI)
- Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA)
- Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-MN)
- Sen. Bernie Sanders (D-VT)
- Businessman Tom Steyer
- Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA)
- Businessman Andrew Yang
Among those on this list, Biden, Buttigieg, Harris, Klobuchar, Sanders and Warren have already qualified for the December debate.
Julián Castro, who previously begged for and received additional campaign funds, isn’t on the list of participants. Some Liberals are crying foul play and unfairness with a billionaire taking Castro’s “rightful” place.
Could it be that Castro simply has less support among the people than Steyer? Not according to the Left. Clearly, this is a sign of foul play and not a question of merit or competence.
Still, tune into this next debate if you want to witness 10 candidates yelling at each other about socialism and destined-to-fail policy plans. Should be good for a few laughs at least.
