Plans are set for the first televised debate among 2020 Democratic presidential contenders, which airs over two nights and will be carried by NBC News networks.
The AP reports that Lester Holt and four of his NBC News colleagues will share moderating duties. The debate will take place at Miami’s Adrienne Arsht Center on June 26 and June 27.
“For each night, Holt will anchor the first hour, where he’ll be joined by Savannah Guthrie of the ‘Today’ show and Jose Diaz-Balart of Telemundo,” the AP reports. “The second hour will feature MSNBC opinion host Rachel Maddow and ‘Meet the Press’ moderator Chuck Todd.”
The Democratic National Committee is expected to announce later this week which candidates meet the threshold for participation in the debate, and which night each of the candidates will appear.
