CNN, NY Times to Host Next Democratic Candidate Debate in October

WASHINGTON – The New York Times and CNN will co-host the next Democrat debate on Oct. 15, with the possibility of a second night being added depending on the number of candidates who meet the qualifying criteria.

The Democratic National Committee announced Friday that the debate would be held in Westerville, Ohio, on the campus of Otterbein University.

The moderators will be the CNN anchors Anderson Cooper and Erin Burnett, who will be joined onstage by The New York Times’s national editor, Marc Lacey.

As of Friday, 11 candidates had qualified for the CNN/New York Times debate — the 10 Democrats who appeared in Thursday night’s debate on ABC, plus billionaire businessman Tom Steyer, who recently qualified for the next one.

Other candidates who are scheduled to participate in next month’s event are former Vice President Joe Biden, Sen. Cory Booker, D-N.J., South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg, former Housing and Urban Development Secretary Julián Castro, Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., former Rep. Beto O’Rourke, D-Texas, Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass. and businessman Andrew Yang.

Other candidates have until the end of the day on Oct. 1 to meet the qualifying standards set by the Democratic National Committee.

The criteria for October are the same as those for September: Candidates must have 130,000 unique donors, including 400 donors each from at least 20 states, and register at least 2 percent support in four qualifying polls.

Cooper and Burnett did not moderate the first debate, which was hosted by CNN and moderated by anchors Jake Tapper and Don Lemon and chief political correspondent Dana Bash.
