    [Debate on now] Dems name 20 candidates for first debates

    June 26 - 27 in Miami . The third and fourth debates in Sept and Oct will only include those polling at 2 percent . The four not making the first cut are Bullock , Gravel , Messam , Moulton . By the end of Jul after the second debates most of the others should be out as well .

    Of those twenty , I would guess no more than 10 tops could be at 2 percent by the pickings for the third debate , possibly quite a few less .

    I think they will split between Biden, Beto, Booty, Sanders and Hickenlooper.

    The others are nobodies.

    The debate will be broadcast live on NBC, MSNBC and Telemundo. The DNC announced it will determine the 10-member debate lineups for each night at random.

    “Random”. Right. Democrat style. As negotiated by the top candidates in the backrooms.

    Remember when the DNC successfully argued in court that their primary votes are not really binding? Super-delegates really decide.

    Let’s see if the malcontents like Hickenlooper and Gabbard end up in the same debate with the front runners.

    Dem debate lineups: O'Rourke on 1st night, front-runners Biden & Sanders on 2nd

    NEW YORK - NBC set the lineup for its two-night debate of 2020 presidential contenders later this month, with a top-heavy second session that will pit former Vice President Joe Biden onstage against 2016 Democratic runner-up, Bernie Sanders, the youthful Mayor Pete Buttigieg and California Sen. Kamala Harris.

    The first night, June 26 in Miami, is headlined by Sens. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts and Cory Booker of New Jersey, along with former Texas Rep. Beto O'Rourke.

    Representatives of 20 campaigns gathered in a conference room at NBC headquarters Friday to watch slips of paper with candidates' names picked out of two boxes. There were separate boxes with the names of candidates polling at above or below 2 percent — an attempt to make sure most of the lesser-known candidates were not grouped together and given the stigma of a minor-league debate.

    Still, when four of the six top-polling candidates landed on June 27, including the clear front-runner in Biden, that night was quickly seen as the one with the biggest stakes.

    Being paired with Biden, 76, and Sanders, 77, gives Buttigieg an opportunity to emphasize the "next generation" theme that the South Bend, Indiana, mayor has been touting. At 37, Buttigieg is the youngest of the leading contenders.

    The six female contenders will be evenly divided between the two nights. The two African American candidates, Booker and Harris, will also be on separate nights. Ideologically, two favorites of the party's liberal wing, Sanders and Warren, won't be going head-to-head, either.

    Among the rest of the field, Washington Gov. Jay Inslee could find benefits in drawing the first night with fewer front-runners to emphasize his climate change-oriented effort. Former Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper, who has been among the most aggressive critics of Sanders' democratic socialism, will have a chance to make those points to him face-to-face.

    NBC will face its own test, to see if it makes compelling programming out of crowded, fractious stages on the opening nights of debate season. The debate will be shown both nights in prime time, 9 p.m. to 11 p.m., on the broadcast network, as well as on MSNBC and Telemundo, and it will be streamed on various platforms. NBC personalities Lester Holt, Savannah Guthrie, Chuck Todd, Rachel Maddow and Jose Diaz-Balart will all be featured.

    Featured on June 26 in Miami will be Warren, Booker, O'Rourke, Inslee, Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar, former Housing and Urban Development Secretary Julian Castro, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, former Rep. John Delaney of Maryland, Rep. Tulsi Gabbard of Hawaii and Rep. Tim Ryan of Ohio.

    The next night's lineup has Biden, Sanders, Harris, Buttigieg, Hickenlooper, New York Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, Colorado Sen. Michael Bennet, author Marianne Williamson, entrepreneur Andrew Yang and Rep. Eric Swalwell of California.

    Never had two buck Chuck (Trader Joe's Charles Shaw wine- the owner is one of the Franzia brothers). Price has gone up too. Now three dollars. Due to shipping costs, more expensive outside California.

    O'Rourke could draw some first night viewers but yes, the "main event" seems to be the second night. Forget who but one of the late night comedians (maybe Bill Maher talking to one of them) said that most people don't vote based on issues but on personality and confidence. He also said it would be a mistake to impeach Trump because the same thing would likely happen to the next Democrat elected.

    Probably what they would like. They don’t have to give anyone any time during these “debates”, so you could split the front runners into separate debates and just give them the majority of the time.

    “Tulsi Gabbard, please give us a twenty second opening statement. Thank you, see you at the next debate. Not.”

    Trump says people may insist he stays on even after eight years.
