Lineup & Details for the February 19 Debate
The debate tonight is being hosted by NBC, MSNBC, and The Nevada Independent.
The candidates in tonight’s debate are:
- Joe Biden, former Vice President
- Michael Bloomberg, former mayor of New York City
- Pete Buttigieg, former mayor of South Bend, Indiana
- Amy Klobuchar, Minnesota senator
- Bernie Sanders, Vermont senator
- Elizabeth Warren, Massachusetts senator
The lineup looks a little different than previous debates. We’ll only have six people this time. Andrew Yang dropped out of the race after the New Hampshire caucus, so he won’t be in the debate tonight. Tom Steyer also didn’t qualify for the debate, but Michael Bloomberg did qualify this time around.
The moderators from NBC are Lester Holt, Chuck Todd, and Hallie Jackson. Vanessa Huac from Telemundo and Jon Ralston from The Nevada Independent are also moderating the debate tonight.
Polling requirements are more stringent for tonight’s debate, but the donation requirements were dropped. Candidates must have 10 percent in at least four national or early-state polls in Nevada or South Carolina, or 12 percent in at least two early-state polls. They can also qualify if they have a delegate in Iowa or New Hampshire.
The next debate after this one is hosted by the Congressional Black Caucus, CBS, and Twitter. That debate will be Tuesday night, February 25, in South Carolina.
