Democratic Presidential Debate Is Coming To Michigan In July
This July, you can get a good look at some of the Democratic hopefuls in the upcoming 2020 election, as The Fox Theatre in Detroit will be hosting the Democratic Presidential Debate on July 30th and 31st. The news came in this morning CNN and the Democratic National Committee to the Detroit Free Press, which did not include any information about any moderators, timing and how to get tickets. Mark Preston, CNN’s vice president of political & special events programming said he is, "excited about airing next month’s back-to-back Democratic presidential debates from Detroit’s historic Fox Theatre."
In order to be apart of the debate, a candidate has to get at least 1% or more support in at least three polls, receive donations from at least 65,000 donors or both. Former Vice President Joe Biden of Delaware; Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt.; Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif.; Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass.; South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg; former Rep. Beto O’Rourke, D-Texas; Sen. Cory Booker, D-N.J.; entrepreneur Andrew Yang of New York; Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, D-Hawaii; Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn.; former HUD Secretary Julian Castro of Texas; Washington State Gov. Jay Inslee, and activist Marianne Williamson have all hit polling and donor qualifications, and will be in attendance. Seven other candidates are still working towards achieving that goal, which must be met by Wednesday, June 12th.
