While the lineup is set, but the stage is not. To determine a random drawing, the candidate list shall be maintained for each of the two nights, the debates on CNN on Thursday evening.

With a record of two dozen candidates for the democratic nomination, has kept the DNC, the first two rounds of the discussions of the 20 candidates – 10 each night on consecutive nights.

To qualify, the thresholds for the White house hopefuls: the reach 1 percent in the three polls recognized by the national party Committee, or contributions of at least 65,000 unique donors, as well as 200 unique donors in at least 20 States.

Fourteen of the candidates on the stage made up for in the satisfaction of the two criteria. You are Biden, Booker, Buttigieg, Castro, Gabbard, Gillibrand, Harris, Inslee, Klobuchar, O’rourke, Sanders, Warren, Williamson and Yang.

The only change is that the field from the first round of the debate-held in Miami at the end of June-is that Bullock qualified and Rep. Eric Swalwell of California in the first round failed.

The second round of the debate could be the last for some of the more-shot-nomination hope. The third round of the debate, which will be held at the beginning of September.

The DNC has raised the thresholds to require that, in order to make the cut for the third and fourth rounds, the candidates will get the posts of a minimum of 130,000 unique donors, as well as the 400 unique donors in at least 20 States. And you have to reach at least 2 percent in four of qualifying surveys.

The new criteria were heavily criticized by some of the lower tier candidates.
