Biden and Warren will share debate stage for the first time Sept. 12

Ten candidates will meet on stage for the third Democratic presidential primary debate in Houston, Texas, on Sept. 12, 2019.
 
The following candidates will participate:
 
• Joe Biden
• Cory Booker
• Pete Buttigieg
• Julián Castro
• Kamala Harris
• Amy Klobuchar
• Beto O’Rourke
• Bernie Sanders
• Elizabeth Warren
• Andrew Yang
 
ABC News and Univision are hosting the debate, which will take place at Texas Southern University. Linsey Davis, David Muir, Jorge Ramos, and George Stephanopoulos will moderate the event. Candidates will have one minute and 15 seconds to answer questions and 45 seconds for rebuttals.
 
The 10 Democratic candidates who did not qualify will have another shot at the fall debates with the same qualifying criteria next month.
 
Tulsi Gabbard, Tom Steyer, and Marianne Williamson are the closest to qualifying, having already passed the fundraising threshold of 130,000 unique donors. Steyer needs one more eligible poll showing 2 percent support, Gabbard two, and Williamson three.
 
The Democratic National Committee announced this week that the fourth primary debate will take place in Ohio on Oct. 15-16, 2019.
