Democrats are going head-to-head in the first 2020 presidential debate!
The first Democratic debates will take place over two nights as the 20 candidates cover pressing topics and campaign strategies for viewers across the country.
The first debate happens TONIGHT (June 26) from 9-11 p.m. ET on NBC, MSNBC, and Telemundo. The second will air Thursday at the same time.
NBCNews.com, MSNBC.com and YouTube have live feeds of the events as well.
Wednesday’s debate includes Sen. Elizabeth Warren, former Rep. Beto O’Rourke, Sen. Cory Booker, Sen. Amy Klobuchar, Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, Gov. Jay Inslee, Mayor Bill de Blasio, former Rep. John Delaney, Rep. Tim Ryan, and former Housing and Urban Development Secretary Julian Castro.
Thursday will feature former Vice President Joe Biden, Sen. Bernie Sanders, Mayor Pete Buttigieg, Sen. Kamala Harris, Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, Sen. Michael Bennet, Rep. Eric Swalwell, former Gov. John Hickenlooper, author Marianne Williamson, and businessman Andrew Yang.
Each debate is two hours long, consisting of five parts with four commercial breaks. Candidates have one minute to respond to questions and 30 seconds for follow-ups.
As there are so many speakers, the candidates will only make closing statements and not opening remarks.
The next debates will happen on July 30 and 31.
