The fifth Democratic presidential debate in Georgia will have four moderators, MSNBC reported Wednesday – and they are all women.
Moderating the Nov. 20 event, co-hosted by MSNBC and The Washington Post, will be Rachel Madwood, host of MSNBC's Rachel Mood Show; Andrea Mitchell, host of MSNBC's Andrea Mitchell Reports and chief foreign affairs correspondent at NBC News; Kristen Wellker, NBC News White House correspondent; and Ashley Parker, White House reporter for The Washington Post.
Let our news meet your inbox. The news and stories that matter were delivered in the morning from weekdays.
The debate is likely to involve fewer candidates than the dozen that qualified for the October debate in Ohio ̵
It will air MSNBC live and will also be broadcast on MSNBC.com and the mail website, as well as on mobile devices through NBC News and Post's mobile applications.
The city, location and format will be announced at a later date, according to MSNBC.
In order to qualify on stage, candidates must meet the fundraising and research criteria set by the Democratic National Committee one week before the debate.
These indicators include reaching at least 3 percent in four qualified state or national surveys or 5 percent in two qualified state surveys. The fundraising threshold requires applicants to receive contributions from 165,000 unique donors, including 600 unique donors in 20 states.
The eight candidates who appear to have qualified so far are former Vice President Joe Biden; New Jersey Senator Corey Booker; Mayor Pete Butigig of South Bend, Indiana; California Senator Kamala Harris; Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders; billionaire Tom Steyer; Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren; and entrepreneur Andrew Jan.
Four other applicants appear to have reached the fundraising threshold, but are still insufficient in the study criteria. Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar is ranked in three of four required polls, former Texas Republican Beto Ourke in Two and Hawaii Republic's Tulsa Gabard in One. Former Housing Secretary Julian Castro has not yet qualified in any poll.
