CNN Draws Nightly Lineups For Next Dem Debates

The New York Times reports:

There will be a round two for Joseph R. Biden Jr. versus Senator Kamala Harris. After Ms. Harris’s criticism of Mr. Biden’s record on race issues dominated the story line following the first Democratic presidential debate last month, the two will square off again later this month in Detroit when candidates gather for the second set of debates.

In a television spectacle that CNN is unlikely to nominate for upcoming awards shows, the cable network spent 40 minutes dividing the 20 qualifying candidates into two groups.

The debate’s first group, which will appear July 30, includes eight candidates running as moderate pragmatists, along with the field’s two highest-profile liberals, Senator Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts and Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont.
