Democratic debate: Top 2020 contenders finally on same stage

Democratic debate: Top 2020 contenders finally on same stage

While all three Democrats are in their seventies, all eyes will be on former vice president Biden who is battling accusations that he a gaffe-prone candidate past his prime, who could struggle during a gruelling campaign. For debate updates and analysis about the issues that matter to you, follow Spectrum News on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram. Here's a quick look at when you'll need to tune in for the debate as candidates seek the Democratic nomination. Earlier this month, CNN hosted a seven-hour town hall, during which the 10 candidates participating in this week's debate were given the opportunity to talk about their climate change policies. But Tulsi Gabbard, a Hawaiian congresswoman, criticized Harris's criminal justice record in the second debate and it led to Harris's poll numbers falling in August.

On the West Coast, the debate will air simultaneously with the rest of the country (not on a delay like sometimes happens for West Coast airings.) This means the debate will begin at 5 p.m.

Debate Channel: Tonight's debate will be broadcast on ABC and on Univision.

The debate can also be streamed live via the Election Central mobile app available here for iOS and Android. Then change the "Provider" (right under TV Listings) to your local provider. Her standard campaign pitch doesn't mention Biden but is built around a plea that the "time for small ideas is over", an implicit criticism of more moderate Democrats who want, for example, a public option health care plan instead of single-payer or who want to repeal Trump's 2017 tax cuts but not necessarily raise taxes further.

One more contender, billionaire activist Tom Steyer, managed to qualify last week for the October debate. Debaters also had to have received contributions from 130,000 unique donors.

Biden, likewise, doesn't often mention Warren or Sanders. Amy Klobuchar, Mayor Pete Buttigieg of South Bend, Indiana, former Housing Secretary Julián Castro, former Texas Rep. Beto O'Rourke and entrepreneur Andrew Yang.

In the first two debates, the field of 20 was split over two nights into 10 each night, and included California Rep. Eric Swalwell, Former Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper, New York Sen. The showdown will take place in Houston, TX, at the Granville M. Sawyer auditorium of Texas Southern University.

It's also the first time Warren and Biden will appear on the same stage.

Candidates will be given one minute and 15 seconds to answer questions and 45 seconds for responses and rebuttals.

Candidates will make opening statements, but there will be no closing remarks, the network says. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) is one such candidate who has qualified for the televised fall debate, but who has struggled to stay relevant during the summer.
