November’s Democratic Debates will Include Klobuchar and Gabbard
As the campaign for president enters its next phase, the results of a new Iowa poll confirm that Tulsi Gabbard, representative from Hawaii, and Amy Globuchar, senator from Minnesota, will be included in the upcoming presidential debates to be held on November 20 in Atlanta.
Klobuchar won 5 percent of Democratic voters support according the Iowa survey from Quinnipiac University. She also has amassed more than 200,000 individual donors, which qualifies her for the December debate.
Gabbard had 3 percent support in the Iowa poll, and had at least 165,000 donors, which qualified her for November’s debate.
Ten candidates will debate in Atlanta: Joe Biden, Cory Booker, Buttigieg, Tulsi Gabbard, Kamala Harris, Amy Klobuchar, Bernie Sanders, Tom Steyer, Warren and Andrew Yang. Only six candidates have already qualified for December’s debate: Biden, Buttigieg, Harris, Klobuchar, Sanders and Warren.
The debate is scheduled to run for two hours, from 9pm to 11pm Eastern Standard Time.
The Qunnipiac poll found the following percentages of support for each candidate still in the running:
- Warren 20 percent
- Buttigieg 19 percent
- Sanders 17 percent
- Biden 15 percent
