The Democratic Party will hold the 5th presidential primary debate on November 20, 2019 at Tyler Perry Studios in Atlanta. It is the 5th of 12 Democratic primary debates scheduled for the 2020 presidential election. So we're not even halfway through the gauntlet and the DNC has pulled a Thanos and disappeared half the original candidates.
As of November 13th, 2019, ten candidates had qualified for the debate:
Joe Biden, Cory Booker, Pete Buttigieg, Tulsi Gabbard, Kamala Harris, Amy Klobuchar, Bernie Sanders, Tom Steyer, Elizabeth Warren, Andrew Yang.
What we know thus far:
For those with cable, the debate will air live on MSNBC. It will also be live-streamed on MSNBC and NBC mobile and digital platforms; on The Washington Post's website and mobile app, and on Urban One's digital platforms.
The moderators will all be women for the first time, fervently anti-Trump activist commentators vetted by the DNC.
