The next debate among Democratic presidential contenders, which was previously scheduled to take place over two nights, will instead be held on one night, ABC News announced today. The announcement comes as the field of candidates continues to shrink.
“ABC’s September 12th coverage will feature ten candidates, reflecting the fact that a good chunk of those campaigning for the job had failed to reach the next level of support to participate in the event, organized by the Democratic National Committee,” Variety reports.
Along with ABC, the event will be carried by Spanish-language broadcaster Univision.
“The two networks will telecast the event between 8:00 p.m. and 11:00 p.m. eastern from Texas Southern University,” Variety reports. “George Stephanopoulos, David Muir and Linsey Davis from ABC News and and Jorge Ramos from Univision will moderate the debate, which is slated to include former Vice President Joe Biden, Senator Cory Booker, Pete Buttigieg, Julián Castro, Senator Kamala Harris, Senator Amy Klobuchar, Beto O’Rourke, Senator Bernie Sanders, Senator Elizabeth Warren and Andrew Yang.”
