A democratic dozen at the president's fourth major debate will be record-breaking.
The fourth round of the Democrats' main debate on Tuesday night is a really big event. Twelve candidates have qualified and meet the criteria for surveys and fundraisers. This means that today's showdown will be the biggest in the history of presidential primary politics, surpassing the eleven Republicans who sat in a primary debate in September 2015. This is the result of political research on Sabato's crystal ball, a political newsletter and a website.
The Dozen Democrats The White House candidates who made the cut are – in alphabetical order: former Vice President Joe Biden; Sen. Cory Booker from New Jersey; South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg; former Minister of Housing and Urban Development Julian Castro; Deputy Tulsi Gabbard of Hawaii; Sens. Kamala Harris of California and Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota; former Deputy Beto O & Rourke of Texas; Sen. Bernie Sanders from Vermont; Businessman and environmental lawyer Tom Steyer; Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts; and technology entrepreneur Andrew Yang.
Twelve candidates on the same stage at the same time could cause an unwieldy debate and a lot of time and attention. The debate will take place at Otterbein University, a liberal arts institution in Westerville, Ohio. The Democratic National Committee's media partners for the showdown are CNN and The New York Times. All eyes are on Bernie Sanders, who was hospitalized only two weeks ago after a heart attack.
