The ninth 2020 Democratic presidential debate will take place tonight in Nevada, just ahead of the state’s caucuses and the third time voters will choose who they want to take on President Donald Trump in the 2020 election.

Only six candidates will be taking the stage after New Hampshire’s primary and Iowa’s caucus winnowed the field down.

Here’s what you need to know about, and how to watch tonight’s 2020 Democratic presidential debate online.


What time is the Nevada 2020 Democratic debate?

The debate will begin at 8pm CT at the Paris Theater in Las Vegas. It is being hosted by NBC News and MSNBC.

The debate will be moderated by anchor Lester Holt, pundit Chuck Todd, White House Correspondent Hallie Jackson, Telemundo correspondent Vanessa Hauc, and the Nevada Independent’s Jon Ralson.

Which candidates are in the Nevada debate?

Five candidates have qualified for the debate. They include:

Several familiar faces will not be on the debate stage, including Tom Steyer, who did not qualify; Andrew Yang, who suspended his campaign after New Hampshire; and Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii), who did not qualify.

There was speculation as to whether Bloomberg would be onstage for this debate–as the DNC relaxed the rules needed to qualify. On Tuesday, a poll showed him with 19% support, giving him enough support in the needed number of polls to make the stage.

This is the first time Bloomberg will appear onstage against his fellow 2020 hopefuls. It’s likely he will spar with Sanders, as the rhetoric between the two has picked up in recent days.
