One Podium Left for June Democratic Primary Debates

The overly-saturated Democratic primary field continues to grow with only one slot left for the first debate scheduled for next month.

Only one slot is left to be filled for the Democratic primary debates out of the 19 podiums already allotted to other candidates.

Candidates still vying for the last podium spot include New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, Colorado Senator Michael Bennet, and three other lesser known candidates.

If both candidates end up qualifying for the spot, the Democratic National Committee will resort to a ranking system.

The podiums filled up quickly, with Montana Governor Steve Bullock becoming the 19th candidate to qualify for a podium.  

In order to qualify for a spot, candidates must receive donations from 65,000 people from 20 different states, or secure 1% of the vote in three different polls designated by the DNC.

Candidates who have already secured a spot include but are not limited to former Vice President Joe Biden, Senator Bernie Sanders, Senator Elizabeth Warren, Senator Kamala Harris, and businessman Andrew Yang.

The first Democratic primary debates are scheduled for June 26 and June 27 in Miami, Florida.
