Kamala Harris, Elizabeth Warren Outraised in Home States

Kamala Harris, Elizabeth Warren Outraised in Home States

Michael Bennet Rep. Tulsi Gabbard Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y., Gov. Jay Inslee, D-Wash., Sen.

The next night, with Biden and Harris will be former housing and human services secretary Julian Castro, entrepreneur Andrew Yang, New Jersey Sen.

The event will spread 20 candidates over two nights, and the network's rules for the drawing have guaranteed the top four contenders will be split evenly on the two stages.

The second night could reprise the clash between Harris and Biden that happened during the first debate, in which Harris, who is black, attacked Biden for opposing some busing to end school segregation in the 1970s. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., former Gov. John Hickenlooper, D-Colo., Gov. Steve Bullock, D-Mont., former Rep. John Delaney, D-Md., Rep. Tim Ryan, D-Ohio, and spiritual guru Marianne Williamson.

It will be "Biden and Harris Round 2" at the second Democratic debates.

Statistics being what they are, it wasn't unlikely that once again Biden and Harris would share the stage on the same night. Booker, Castro and Yang will debate on July 31.

The two U.S. presidential race leaders will meet on 30 July, while another two - Joe Biden and Kamala Harris - will face each other the next day.

Harris owned the evening's most powerful moment, when she boldly confronted frontrunner Joe Biden on race and identity and called out his "hurtful" comments in praise of segregationist senators with whom he worked but disagreed.

Debate experts said Biden should be prepared for more criticism from other candidates seeking to knock him down a peg. They will be joined by several more moderate candidates who are likely to question the senators' sweeping proposals for single-payer health insurance and tuition-free college, among other plans.

The result is a field of candidates in search of did-you-see-that clips to dominate successive news cycles, something to keep them in the churn of cable and social media content that drives attention, small-dollar contributions and, they hope, a rise in the polls. The night will also feature the race's oldest candidate, Sanders, next to its youngest, Buttigieg. A candidate had to register at least 1% in three polls recognized by the Democratic National Committee.

This will mark Gov. Bullock's first presidential debate since he was ineligible for NBC's debates last month.

But based on public information, it had been clear for days that Moulton, Messam, Steyer and Sestak were the four candidates likely to miss the debate stage.

The entry qualifications for the third debate in September will roughly double and candidates will be required to make the cut in both polling and donors, not simply one category.
