So the very first Democratic Presidential candidate debates will take place this week over two nights in Miami. NBC and Telemundo will play host and there will be ten candidates on stage per night.
The debates will be moderated by the NBC team of Savannah Guthrie, Lester Holt, Chuck Todd, with MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow and Telemundo’s José Diaz-Balart with the events taking place at the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts in downtown Miami.
The debate, which is sanctioned by the Democratic National Committee, will air live across NBC, MSNBC and Telemundo from 9 to 11 p.m. ET each night.
So here is where you can watch all of the action via streaming:
There will be plenty of pre-debate coverage on CNN, FOX NEWS, TYT NETWORK as well as of course all day coverage on MSNBC.
For those new to the game here is how the Democtratic National Committee came up with how a candidate could make it to the debate stage in Miami. Candidates needed to either register 1 percent support in three qualified polls or have 65,000 unique donors to their campaign, with a minimum of 200 different donors in at least 20 states, to qualify.
You can’t have debate without rules so here is how that will look according to NBC. Each candidate will have 60 seconds to answer questions and 30 seconds to respond to follow-ups. There will be no opening statements, but the contenders will have a chance to deliver closing remarks at the close of the debate.
Night two will see these Democratic hopeful’s take to the stage.
Joe Biden, Michael Bennet, Pete Buttigieg, Kirsten Gillibrand, Kamala Harris, John Hickenlooper, Bernie Sanders, Eric Swalwell, Marianne Williamson and Andrew Yang.
After the first debate in Miami the second debate of the year will be hosted by CNN in Detroit on July 30 and 31, and the third debate will be hosted by ABC News on September 12 and 13.
There will be more debates coming of course in 2020.
