Michigan Live reports:
Democrats will hold their second 2020 presidential primary debate in Detroit, the Democratic National Committee announced today. The debate — which could include up to 16 Democrats — will take place on July 30-31 and air live on CNN. The first primary debate will take place on June 26 and 27 in Miami.
President Donald Trump campaigned heavily across the state to narrowly beat Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton in 2016, turning Michigan red for the first time since 1988. Two years later, an all-female Democratic ticket swept statewide races, setting Michigan up for a competitive race in 2020.
The road to the White House runs right through Michigan! We’re proud to host a debate between such a diverse range of candidates.https://t.co/9va8DUmz6e
