MSNBC, Washington Post to co-host November Democratic presidential Argument

The discussion will take place in primetime on Nov. 20, and will broadcast live on MSNBC and round the Radio One system. It is going to also flow on MSNBC.com along with the Post’s site, in addition to across mobile devices through NBC News and the Post’s mobile programs and Radio One’s digital programs.

The particular place, place, format, and moderators will be announced at a later date.

To qualify for this particular point, candidates need to meet with ethical and polling standards laid out by the Democratic National Committee a week before the discussion.

The polling condition is a little different compared to prior arguments — it requires candidates to reach at least 3% in four qualifying country or nationwide polls or 5 percent in just two qualifying state surveys. The fundraising brink requires applicants to have received gifts from 165,000 unique donors, such as 600 unique donors in 20 nations.

Former Housing Secretary Juli├ín Castro, Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar and former Texas Rep. Beto O’Rourke all seem to have attained the donor condition but haven’t fulfilled the polling requirements.

All 11, also Hawaii Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, have qualified for its fourth argument, which is scheduled for Tuesday at Otterbein University at Westerville, Ohio. It is being hosted by CNN and The New York Times also had reduced polling fundraising standards. Candidates needed to enroll at least 2 percent in four qualifying surveys and get contributions from 130,000 online donors.

MSNBC, NBC News and Telemundo hosted the very first of the disagreements back in June. Twenty candidates qualified for this discussion, which was divided into two back to back nights with 10 candidates.
