Your Guide To The 3rd Round Of Democratic Debates

Democrat presidential hopeful Kamala Harris has yet to gain significant ground in the early months of the 2020 contest

The full field for Thursday night's debate is: Biden, Warren, Bernie Sanders, Kamala Harris, Pete Buttigieg, Andrew Yang, Cory Booker, Beto O'Rourke, Amy Klobuchar and Julian Castro.

The ABC News debate is the first confined to one night after several candidates dropped out and others failed to meet new qualification standards.

In the first two debates, the field of 20 was split over two nights into 10 each night, and included California Rep. Eric Swalwell, Former Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper, New York Sen. It will unfold in a rapidly changing state that Democrats hope to eventually bring into their column.

Warren is getting lots of attention and was not only the most popular candidate among Democrats in the latest NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist poll, she's now caught up with - and even passed in some instances - fellow progressive Sanders in an average of the polls. The debate will be held at Texas Southern University, a historically black university located in Houston, and will be televised on ABC and Univision (with a Spanish translation). Live, from Houston, Texas, the event starts at 8 pm ET and will air on your local ABC station, with live streaming embedded below.


Each will deliver an opening statement and have 1 minute and 15 seconds for direct responses to questions, and 45 seconds for responses and rebuttals. Warren is widely seen as a potential frontrunner; rising in recent polls that has her tied at 26% alongside Joe Biden.

Rendell, who is backing Joe Biden in the Democratic primary, goes on to criticize Warren's characterization of a fundraiser he hosted for Biden in April as "a swanky private fund-raiser for wealthy donors" in a fundraising email she sent the day after the gathering. Biden, Sanders and Warren are 76, 78 and 70, respectively - hardly a contrast to the 73-year-old Trump. That will create an interesting dynamic, as the frontrunner will be in between the two major candidates who have eschewed big-dollar fundraising and who want to push the party much further to the left on economic issues. This means that every candidate on stage has at least one more shot after tonight to reach a national audience and make a case for their candidacy.

The sharp bickering during the first two rounds of the debates dismayed some Democrats, who have urged the candidates to rein in their attacks and focus on laying out their own affirmative agendas.

One more contender, billionaire activist Tom Steyer, managed to qualify last week for the October debate.
