Democratic presidential candidate Gov. Steve Bullock joins Dana Perino for an exclusive interview on ‘Fox News Sunday.’

Not to do with the expiry of the deadline in order to qualify for the next month, the third round of the democratic presidential debates in front of the door of the Democratic National Committee stands in front of a furious chorus of criticism of the candidate likely to make the cut.

In the case of the issue of the DNC’s criteria for candidates to participate in the prime-time showdown, including the contributions of 130,000 individual donors and the attainment of at least 2 percent in four of qualifying surveys.


“The DNC-process is overwhelming, the debate at a time when we need it most,” charged Sen. Michael Bennet of Colorado – one of the lower classes, White House contenders, which is all but sure not for the qualification for the third round.

Montana Gov. Steve Bullock, who also needs a miracle to qualify by the end of Wednesday’s appointment, arguing that “this is a DNC debate, the rules have this primary in the ‘The Hunger Games’ — every step, it seems that the donor.”

While the criticism is not new – the DNC similar jabs earlier this year, when many of the longer shots for the nomination fought to the stage at the first and second round of the debate – this time the national party Committee, in particular, attacked the about the lack of qualified surveys. Critics say, to prevent the wrong candidates in the vicinity of qualifying actually set the stage.

The campaign of the billionaire environmental and progressive activist Tom Steyer – who is only a short survey, that the stage loaded, and that his candidate is “denied” the opportunity to qualify “due to the lack of the last qualifying surveys.”


Steyer campaign, called on Friday to expand on the DNC”, your polling criteria in order to be more qualified polling, including at least one survey in the state of Nevada before the deadline next week. As a party, we want to ensure that the will of the voters is respected.”

Rep. Tulsi Gabbard from Hawaii is in the two surveys, nearly qualifying for the third round of consultations. Your campaign claimed that the DNC “revise your list of debate qualifying surveys in the light of the numerous irregularities in the election and the time of these surveys, transparency, and fairness.”

The Gabbard campaign, argues that “the DNC-non-published criteria for the selection of the 16 polling organizations that you are certified as a’.'”

The Congressman, the campaign noted that Gabbard crowned “2 percent support in 26 national and early state polls, but only two of them are on the DNC certified ‘list.”

Gabbard registered at 3 percent, in the only live-phone-operator carried out the survey in the first-in-the-nation presidential primary state of New Hampshire. The survey was the first since the second round of the Democratic presidential primary debates at the end of last month. But the survey by the Boston Globe and Suffolk University – are not on the DNC list of qualified surveys.

DNC war Room directed by Adrienne Watson defended the criteria, told Fox News that “the debate, the rules have been given to the public for months, and candidates, more opportunities and more time to qualify for debates than in previous cycles.”

And the DNC noted that polling windows – the spectrum ranges from two up to six months – more than in the cycles of the past, and that the list of approved surveys is more than in any previous cycle.


Ten candidates have already qualified to the stage for the third debate – as well as October the fourth round. You are Biden former Vice-President, Joe; sen. Cory Booker from New Jersey; South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg; former housing and urban development Secretary Julian Castro; Sens. Kamala Harris in California and Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota, former Rep. Beto O’rourke of Texas; Sens. Bernie Sanders of Vermont and Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts, and tech entrepreneur Andrew Yang.

Klobuchar compared the struggle to the debate a “Game of Thrones” situation.”

But it underlines the importance of the production of the cut statement, “I’m really glad to have made it to the debates in the autumn. I think this is a great opportunity and especially if we go in two nights, in order to be able to answer questions in a more than 30-second soundbites.”

Yang told Fox News on Monday that “I’m biased a bit because I the fall debates, so I think the rules are good…I think that the DNC has been very fair and open and transparent.”

And stabbed some of its rivals in the record-breaking range of about 20 White house hopefuls, the first-time politician said: “the rules were out there for all of us to see, for months and if you were going to complain, the criteria, you would probably want to complain about it a bit earlier in the process to make it seem like you don’t purely selfish.”


Veteran democratic consultant and communications strategist Lynda Tran is not the fault of the lower-tier candidates, the values above the threshold.

“I don’t think to fight it sour grapes hard for a chance to be specified on the debate stage,” Tran. “Whether you are leading the polls to the middle tier, or circling the drain, the debates shall include all candidates the best and most effective shot to their case millions of people, why you have to be the right choice, commander-in-chief.”

But Tran, the communication for Barack Obama-tied Organizing for America and served as a high official in his administration said that “every single candidate is subject to the same rules and has the same Chance, the qualifications to fulfill. It is a delicate balance for the DNC, as inclusive as possible, the eventual candidacy is, without any crippling.”

She stressed that “at some point the field must closely. The sooner that happens, the more likely the remaining candidates, and then the potential candidate can be on the development of the basic infrastructure that is necessary to actually gain the White house.”
