We've already got a thread about Joe Biden, but it needs to be expanded to include most of the other candidates.
The first debate will this coming Wednesday, and the second will be held the next night.
Both of them will be a huge improvement over the 2016 Republican debates because
(1) there won't be a "kids table" event for lesser candidates due to the fact that each debate will include front runners
(2) the moderators will not be asking questions about hand size
The following people will be in the first debate:
Booker, Warren, Beto O’Rourke, Amy Klobuchar, John Delaney, Tulsi Gabbard, Julian Castro, Tim Ryan, Bill de Blasio and Jay Inslee.
On the second night, Joe Biden will face off against Sanders, Harris, Buttigieg, Michael Bennet, Marianne Williamson, Eric Swalwell, Kirsten Gillibrand, Andrew Yang and John Hickenlooper.
The debates will be on NBC, MSNBC, and Telemundo.
The networks announced on Tuesday morning that the moderators will be Lester Holt, Savannah Guthrie, Chuck Todd, Rachel Maddow and José Díaz-Balart.
At this point, it is likely that Trump will be the Republican candidate, but it's possible that he WILL have some challengers. As of now, those people are William Weld, John Kasich, and Larry Hogan.
Presidents who face a reputable challenge in the primary frequently lose reelection, even after winning their party’s nomination; a divided party is less likely to turn out the votes needed. The last time this happened was in 1992, when President George H. W. Bush lost reelection to Bill Clinton after facing a far-right candidate (Pat Buchanan) in the primary.
The 2020 Democratic convention will be held July 13-16, 2020, in Milwaukee
The Republican convention will be held in Charlotte, who was the ONLY BIDDER.
Charlotte Mayor Vi Lyles, a Democrat, says the decision to host the convention was the hardest she has tackled — "not just as a mayor but as a mom and as a friend" to her community.
To quell anger from her constituents, she has vowed that she will not deliver a welcome speech, an extraordinary break from custom. Other local leaders are going further, promising to use the occasion to speak out against Trump.
In 2016, trump got 50.5% of the vote in North Carolina.
