The New York Times reports:
The New York Times and CNN will co-host the next Democratic debate near Columbus, Ohio, on Oct. 15, with the possibility of a second round one night later depending on how many candidates meet the qualifying criteria.
The Democratic National Committee announced Friday that the debate would be held in Westerville, Ohio, on the campus of Otterbein University. The moderators will be the CNN anchors Anderson Cooper and Erin Burnett as well as The Times’s National editor, Marc Lacey.
So far 11 candidates have qualified for the CNN/New York Times debate — the 10 Democrats who appeared in Thursday night’s debate on ABC, as well as the businessman Tom Steyer, who recently qualified for the next one. Other candidates have until the end of the day on Oct. 1 to meeting the qualifying standards.
The NYT did not host any 2016 debates.
The DNC announces that CNN and The New York Times will co-host the fourth presidential debate next month in Westerville, Ohio.
The debate will air live from Otterbein University on October 15 with the possibility a second night will be added. https://t.co/WaJc0JXbMR
