Ten candidates will be on stage Wednesday for the fifth Democratic presidential debate. That’s two fewer than were onstage for last month’s debate: former Congressman Beto O’Rourke dropped out and another candidate, former HUD Secretary Julián Castro, failed to hit the required polling levels. In order to qualify for this debate, candidates needed to achieve at least 3 percent in four approved polls or at least 5 percent in two early-state polls plus bring in donations from at least 165,000 unique donors.
The fifth Democratic debate is scheduled for Wednesday, November 20 and will be co-hosted by The Washington Post and MSNBC with all female moderators, including MSNBC anchors Rachel Maddow and Andrea Mitchell, NBC News White House correspondent Kristen Welker, and Washington Post White House reporter Ashley Parker. The debate will run from 9:00 to 11:00 PM EST.
The debate will air on MSNBC. It can also be streamed live on www.washingtonpost.com.
