The Democratic National Committee has officially announced the 20 candidates who will appear onstage in the first 2020 Democratic presidential debates.
Bennet, Biden, Booker, Buttigieg, Castro, de Blasio, Delaney, Gabbard, Gillibrand, Harris, Hickenlooper, Inslee, Klobuchar, O’Rourke, Ryan, Sanders, Swalwell, Warren, Williamson, and Yang were the lucky ones chosen for primetime debates out of a pool of 24 candidates.
In order to qualify, candidates had to either poll at 1% in three surveys or receive 65,000 individual donations.
Montana Gov. Steve Bullock; Massachusetts Rep. Seth Moulton; former Alaska Sen. Mike Gravel and Miramar, Fla., Mayor Wayne Messam all missed the cut.
