    NBC4's Conan Nolan in Miami for Democratic Debate

    [LA] NBC4's Conan Nolan in Miami for Democratic Debate

    NBC4's Conan Nolan was in the house for Wednesday's Democratic debate in Miami.

    (Published Thursday, June 27, 2019)

    Under rules set by the DNC, candidates needed to either register 1 percent support in three qualified polls or have 65,000 unique donors to their campaign, with a minimum of 200 donors in at least 20 states, to qualify for the debate.

    The 20 candidates who qualified were divided into two groups of 10.

    In an effort to avoid grouping lesser-known candidates together on one night and high-profile candidates on the other, candidates were divided into two groups -- those who polled on average at or above 2 percent and those who polled on average below 2 percent through midnight on June 12. A random draw then took place, to create two groupings of 10.

    The candidates position on the stage at the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts in Miami was determined by their standings in qualifying public polling through June 12. Top polling candidates were placed at the center positions, with lower polling contenders being placed closer to the edges of the stage. Candidates who were tied in the polls were ranked based on the overall number of qualifying polls.

    Former Vice President Joe Biden and Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders will be in the middle Thursday. Standing from left to right will be author Marianne Williamson, former Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper, entrepreneur Andrew Yang, South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg, Biden, Sanders, California Sen. Kamala Harris, New York Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, Colorado Sen. Michael Bennet and California Rep. Eric Swalwell.

    "NBC Nightly News" anchor Lester Holt, "Today" anchor Savannah Guthrie and "Noticias Telemundo" anchor Jose Diaz-Balart will moderate the first hour. Holt will also appear in the second hour, which "Meet the Press" moderator Chuck Todd and MSNBC host Rachel Maddow will moderate.
