The Democratic Party unveiled their schedule for the first round of debates in the coming weeks; confirming frontrunners Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders will appear on the same stage during the second night of the two-day event.
“Front-runners Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders will end up sharing the debate stage in Miami later this month, along with heavy-hitting rivals Kamala Harris and Pete Buttigieg, according to the line-up announced Friday,” reports Fox News.
“Former Vice President Biden, Sens. Sanders, I-Vt., and Harris, D-Calif., and South Bend Mayor Buttigieg are four of the five highest-polling candidates in recent national and early-voting state polling. The fifth, Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., will appear on stage with another crowd of candidates the first night,” adds Fox.
“Warren, whose poll numbers have jumped in recent weeks, will be the highest-polling candidate on the first night — which could help her raise her profile even further, but also denies her the opportunity to take on the front-runners directly,” concludes the article. “Joining her will be Sens. Cory Booker of New Jersey and Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota, former Rep. Beto O’Rourke of Texas, Washington state Gov. Jay Inslee, former Housing and Urban Development secretary and former San Antonio Mayor Julian Castro, Reps. Tulsi Gabbard of Hawaii and Tim Ryan of Ohio, former Rep. John Delaney of Maryland and New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio.”
