The Democratic National Committee will hold its fourth primary debate on October 15 in Ohio. If more than 10 candidates qualify for the debate, there will be a second night October 16.
Campaigns will have until 11:59 p.m. ET on October 1 to meet donor and polling thresholds to qualify. The thresholds to qualify are the same as the thresholds for the September 12 debate, meaning that a candidate who did not qualify for the September debate could reach the polling and donor thresholds to qualify for the October debate.

The format still sucks, but at least we'll have the frontrunners on the stage together.

Biden's team has probably been having nightmares about what he might say.

I'm interested in how you would change the format, J Thomas.

Give them each more time to answer a question?
Not J Thomas, but have 2, one hour or 2, hour and a half debates with 5 candidates each hour. 10 people cutting in, talking over, and constantly raising their hand is ridiculous. Top 5 in the second group bottom 5 in the first group.

I hear you, Gray - but FYI, there's going to be another debate as follows, which sounds more like what you are looking for:

That works for me. Plus, give the moderators the ability to hit candidates with a tennis ball if they duck a question.

IF you are not in the top 5 by October why are you still kidding yourself thinking you will win the nomination?

Regardless of her policies.......Warren's vocal tone is pretty much on par with Beth Mowins'. That's not a good thing for a candidate.
yeah, she's a little off tonight.

Mayor Pete, Beto, Booker, Castro, and Warren have all had nice moments. Bernie is Bernie. Biden is doing well, but he's got this air of entitlement that is just getting on my nerves. Still don't understand why Yang or Klobuchar are even up there.

I didn't appreciate Castro going postal on Joe during the health care segment. That was a bad moment for him.

For me Yang > Castro - (by a significant margin).

Agree about AK - but would put CB in there too.
