The debate is coming up tomorrow night.
The deadline to qualify for the debate, which will be cohosted by CNN and The Des Moines Register, was midnight on Friday, Jan. 10, and much like in previous debates, the DNC required candidates to pass key polling and fundraising thresholds to qualify.
This time around, candidates were required to hit 5% in four national polls or 7% in two early primary state polls. They also had to receive funding from 225,000 unique donors across 20 different states.
The candidates who have qualified are:
Former Vice President Joe Biden
Former mayor of South Bend, Ind., Pete Buttigieg
Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar
Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders
Billionaire investor and activist Tom Steyer
Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren
Billionaire and former New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg had the poll numbers to qualify, but because he is spending his own money on his campaign and eschewing donations, he will not reach the 225,000 unique donor requirements and won’t be onstage.
