Mary Curtis: Democrats Face Debate Cut-off Deadline
CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Wednesday will determine who takes the stage in the chase to be the Democratic candidate for 2020. The DNC no doubt hopes the number stays at 10, which will mean one debate on one night, Sept. 12. So far, that’s the number who have qualified, by earning at least 2 percent in four approved polls, with 130,000 unique donors (including at least 400 individual donors in at least 20 states). But at least 20 candidates are still in the running.
