MSNBC and The Washington Post will jointly host the fifth democratic presidential debate in Georgia next month, MSNBC said Tuesday.
The debate will be held at prime time on November 20 and broadcast live on MSNBC and Radio One. It will also be streamed on MSNBC.com and the Post's website, as well as on mobile devices via NBC News and Post's mobile apps, as well as Urban One's digital platforms.
Location, venue, format and moderators will be announced at a later date.
In order to qualify for the stage, candidates must meet the Fundraising and Voting criteria set by the Democratic National Committee a week before the debate.
The eligibility requirement differs slightly from previous debates ̵
An unofficial poll by NBC News shows that eight candidates have apparently qualified – former Vice President Joe Biden, New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker, Mayor of South Bend, Pete Buttigieg, California Senator, Kamala Harris, Senator of Vermont, Bernie Sanders, billionaire, Tom Steyer, Massachusetts Senator, Elizabeth Warren, and entrepreneur Andrew Yang The former Texas representative, Beto O Rourke, appears to have all met the donor requirements, but has not met the retrieval requirements.
All 11 and Hawaii representative Tulsi Gabbard have qualified for the fourth debate, scheduled for October 15 at Otterbein University in Westerville, Ohio. It is hosted by CNN and the New York Times and has lower criteria for collecting polls. Candidates had to register at least 2 percent in four qualified surveys and receive donations from at least 130,000 online donors.
MSNBC, NBC News and Telemundo hosted the first of the Democratic primary debates in June. Twenty candidates qualified for this debate, which was divided into two consecutive evenings with ten candidates each. 19659013]
