Largest presidential primary debate ever marks first event since launch of Trump impeachment inquiry and Sanders’s campaign return
Twelve candidates will participate in tonight’s debate, but only two-thirds of them have secured their place in the next face-off.
The fifth Democratic presidential debate will take place on November 20 in Georgia, and only eight candidates – Joe Biden, Elizabeth Warren, Bernie Sanders, Pete Buttigieg, Kamala Harris, Andrew Yang, Cory Booker and Tom Steyer – have qualified so far.

Millions of debate viewers will likely have the same question on their minds when the candidates take the stage tonight: Who’s the new guy?
This is supposed to be a process of elimination, and through three previous debates, the Democratic field has indeed shrunk. But the debate stage will expand temporarily on Tuesday to admit one new face, billionaire activist Tom Steyer.
