2020 democratic primaries

The mayor of America's biggest city, New York's Bill de Blasio, is jumping into a presidential race where an expansive Democratic field includes the man running a city about 99% smaller.


The Democratic National Committee and NBC News announced Friday morning that they’ve selected the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts of Miami-Dade County to host the first presidential debates of the 2020 election.

The debates will take place on back-to-back nights on June 26 and 27 and will be aired live from 9 to 11 on NBC, MSNBC and Telemundo. As many as 10 qualifying candidates competing for the Democratic nomination to run against Donald Trump will be on stage either night, with the draw selected randomly.
