Democrats will hold 12 debates for the 2020 presidential contest

Six debates will take place in 2019, DNC Chairman Tom Perez said, and six in 2020.


WASHINGTON — The Democratic National Committee announced on Thursday that it will sanction 12 upcoming presidential primary debates, with the first ones taking place in June and July of 2019, DNC Chairman Tom Perez said on a conference call with reporters.

Six of the debates will take place in 2019, Perez said, while the other six will be held in 2020, with the final one occurring in April of 2020. Perez announced that none of the states with the first nominating contests — Iowa, New Hampshire, Nevada and South Carolina — would host a debate until the 2020 calendar year.

Given the potential size of the Democratic field, Perez said the DNC would split the debates into separate events on back-to-back nights, with participation on a particular evening determined by a random selection open to the public.

That’s in contrast to the early Republican presidential debates in 2016, when the GOP held an undercard debate on the same day before the primetime debate featuring the major candidates.

DNC chair defends debate schedule after Biden says election process starts 'too early'

Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez defended the party's debate schedule on Sunday after former Democratic Vice President Joe Biden said the U.S. elections process begins "too early."

"Actually, it started earlier in the past. When we were figuring out how many debates and when to start, we looked back 30, 40 years. And there have been debates that have started in February of the year before the election. So we're kind of in the middle of the pack," Perez said on NBC's "Meet the Press."

Host Chuck Todd pressed Perez on the schedule of debates, which will begin in June, and referenced comments made Saturday by Biden, who is considering a 2020 bid.

"I think we have a tendency, particularly in the states, to start the whole election process much too early,” Biden said while in Munich.

But Perez said Sunday that the early debate schedule will work because "people have a real thirst for learning what our candidates are thinking about."

We do do the whole election thing waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay too far ahead of time. Hell, twitler has been running since the day he was inaugurated in 2017. It's just a part of our whole election mess in this country. I understand the free speech argument whenever anybody says it all starts too soon compared to almost anywhere else in the world, but when something is clearly broken, it's time to look at why and how to fix it. We also wouldn't have such a mess if corporations weren't people (my friend) and money wasn't speech.

Democrats up requirements for 2nd round of primary debates

ATLANTA (AP) — The Democratic National Committee is upping the ante for its second round of presidential primary debates, doubling the polling and grassroots fundraising requirements from its initial summer debates.

The parameters, announced Wednesday, are likely to help cull a crop of 24 candidates and, in the process, intensify scrutiny on Democratic Chairman Tom Perez and his pledge to give all candidates a chance to be heard .

The DNC’s outline for its September debate — the third of at least a dozen promised matchups during the 2020 nominating fight — decrees that candidates can participate only by reaching 2% in four approved polls released between June 28 and Aug. 28 while also collecting contributions from a minimum of 130,000 unique donors before Aug. 28. That donor list must include a minimum of 400 individuals in at least 20 states. The qualifications would remain the same for an October debate, though the party hasn’t set the deadline for measuring fundraising and polling.

About a half-dozen candidates have demonstrated the capacity to hit the new marks with relative ease. Several more are on the fence, and perhaps another dozen face an uphill path. Debate slots are a coveted opportunity for candidates looking to break from the pack, and not being on the stage could be the death knell for a struggling campaign.

ABC and Univision will host the Sept. 12 debate, with a second night if necessary to accommodate the qualified candidates. The September debate site hasn’t been settled. Neither the dates nor location is set for October.

The first debates are June 26-27 in Miami . The second set of debates is on July 30-31 in Detroit . Those first rounds carry a polling threshold of 1% and a fundraising mark of 65,000 donors with a minimum of 200 in at least 20 states.

DNC Members Push For Climate Change-Centered Presidential Debate

But the party is holding its ground, saying the debates should be wide ranging.


Over 50 voting members of the Democratic National Committee have submitted a resolution calling on DNC Chairman Tom Perez to hold a presidential debate devoted exclusively to the topic of climate change.

The signers plan to collect more signatures and submit the resolution for official consideration at a DNC meeting in Pittsburgh at the end of the month. Perez would be free to reject it, even if it had majority support in the DNC. In the meantime, it is intended to function as an open letter and source of pressure on Perez.

The resolution is a response to the DNC’s decision on Wednesday to inform Washington Gov. Jay Inslee (D) that it was rejecting his request for a climate-centered debate. Inslee, who is languishing at the bottom of public polls, has made climate change the singular focus of his 2020 candidacy.

The DNC also declared that any candidate who participates in an unsanctioned stage appearance alongside other candidates would be barred from future DNC-sponsored debates.

In response to the announcement, Washington Democratic Party Chairwoman Tina Podlodowski reached out to fellow state party leaders and Democratic National Committee members to organize a letter of protest. She solicited support first from leaders in neighboring Western states, then expanded outward.

Can't wait to hear Chuck Todd asking the candidates how they respond to whatever it is that 45 is saying or doing, and following up a question of how they can beat 45, because "the voters" think he's doing okay.

I hope they respond by telling Chuckles to pound sand.

I can't wait to see him give an interview to a reporter who asks hard questions. This is lame even by Jordan's standards.

Talk about taking foreign help.

Hillary Clinton hired a foreign spy. He talked to Russians and put together an oppo research document. It wasn’t verified, but the FBI used it to spy on the Trump campaign.

He was on CNN the other day. When they ask him about it, he will say pretty much that. When they follow up, he will repeat it louder.

This 538 article argues, despite the DNC's efforts, it got the varsity and undercard debates it was trying to avoid:
Four of the five highest-polling candidates (former Vice President Joe Biden, Sen. Bernie Sanders, Sen. Kamala Harris and South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg) will all debate on the same night (Thursday). Meanwhile, the four higher-polling candidates on Wednesday’s slate include Sens. Cory Booker and Amy Klobuchar, who are polling either right at or just barely above the 2 percent dividing line. In total, 21 percent worth of polling support is appearing on the first night of the debates and 64 percent is on the second night.

Bullock qualifies for second Democratic debate

Montana Gov. Steve Bullock’s campaign said on Tuesday that he has qualified for the second round of Democratic presidential debates in July after notching 1 percent in a CBS News–YouGov poll released over the weekend.

“As the only candidate who has won a Trump state, we are excited that Governor Steve Bullock’s important voice will be on the stage for the second debate,” Bullock’s campaign manager, Jennifer Ridder, said in a statement.

In order to qualify for the first round of debates, candidates had to either amass support from 65,000 unique donors or score at least 1 percent in three polls. The deadline to meet those thresholds for the first debates passed last week.

Bullock ultimately failed to make the stage for the first debates this month after securing 1 percent in only two qualifying polls. He was initially thought to have qualified for that debate until the Democratic National Committee (DNC) announced that it would exclude a Washington Post–ABC News poll in January that showed him with 1 percent support.

Buttigieg defends decision to attend debate despite South Bend controversy

Mayor Pete Buttigieg, a 2020 contender, is defending his decision to attend the first Democratic debate despite tensions in his city of South Bend, Ind., after a white police officer fatally shot a black man.

"We have to be able to do many things at once," Buttigieg said in an MSNBC interview on Wednesday, indicating his plans to attend the debate.

"This is not just a policy question, this is a moral question," he continued. "And everything that all of us do, we do in the shadow of systemic racism that has poisoned the relationship between communities of color and police departments everywhere in the country.” ...

"What I found on that stage at that town hall was, it was my job to absorb all of that pain, absorb all of that anguish, knowing that I could talk about all of the things we've done, but clearly we haven't done enough," he said on MSNBC. "And accepting responsibility for that because I'm in charge."

There will be two nights of debate, with ten candidates appearing on Wednesday night. Buttigieg will join nine other Democratic presidential contenders on the debate stage on Thursday night.

Warren came out strong. Savanah Gutherie is asking tough questions, good. Beto spoke Spanish. Cory whiffed on a tax rate question. Tulsi didn't answer the question. DiBlasio is animated. Inslee is strong, he started with describing unions as "the people who brought you weekends". Tim Ryan had a story about GM workers unbolting factory equipment and shipping them to China. Lots of talking points, no arguments yet.
