DNC raises debate requirements, excluding Tulsi Gabbard
0

The Democratic National Committee has increased its requirements for participating in the March 15 debate in Arizona, hosted by CNN and Univision, the next Democratic debate of the primary season. The new requirements mean Tulsi Gabbard will not be on the stage.

Under the new requirements, candidates must have at least 20% of the total number of pledged delegates, a requirement only Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders have met. The previous rules only required candidates to secure one delegate, which Gabbard did in American Samoa.

Gabbard has not yet addressed the new requirements.

Since the South Carolina primary on February 29, Tom Steyer, Amy Klobuchar, Pete Buttigieg and Elizabeth Warren have all dropped out, effectively making it a two-way race between Sanders and Biden. Klobuchar and Buttigieg both endorsed Biden, as did former presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke.
