Skip to comments.Democrats to start presidential primary debates in June 2019
Posted on 12/20/2018 10:00:15 AM PST by Olog-hai
Democrats will hold at least a dozen presidential primary debates starting in June 2019 and running through April 2020, with party Chairman Tom Perez promising rules that will give everyone in a potentially large field a fair shot at voters attention.
Making public his first in a series of decisions over the 2020 debate calendar, Perez said Thursday that the national party will sponsor six debates in 2019 and six more in 2020. That could be extended if the nomination process drags deep into the spring.
Exact dates, locations, media partners and qualifying thresholds will be announced in early 2019. But Perez says early voting states of Iowa, New Hampshire, Nevada and South Carolina wont host debates until 2020. [ ]
From the outset, Perez and Cahill stated a determination to avoid charges of favoritism that dogged Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton in 2016, in part because of the debate schedule established by then-Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman-Schultz.

We should protest the debates. Bring it to them. Family friendly protests like the original TEA Party protests.
Ugh, a 2 year campaign season is nuts. We are not pleased to see press and TV dominated by political ads and opinion pieces so long into the presidential election. Start the hoopla in February 2020 instead.
The cold chicken dinner circuit will be busy this winter. There will be RATS all over the country looking for money. Shoot, they do that every single day as a party! A presidential race doesnt change that. After reading so many posts about potential RAT presidential candidates I think Kamala Harris and Beto are their two strongest candidates right now, but out there lurking of course is Hillary. She will have a say on who the nominee will eventually be even if isnt her in the end.
They will all be speeches about who hates Trump the most.
“I hate him”.
“I hate him more”.
“I hate him even more”.
“I hate him with a passion”.
“He has orange skin”.
“His wife married him for his money”.
“He is killing innocent Mexican children”.
The “democrat” debates will be nothing but public, Trump-bashing sessions...just like everything else.
It’s a trigger reflex, put a microphone/camera in front of a democrat, then some primal instinct kicks in to bash Donald Trump.
It will be something else that CNN will use for “headline research”, and that I can totally ignore.
Communists vs. Socialists
The Democrats wait so long to get started. I would have thought there would be more pronounced profiles of front-runners at this point in the cycle.
Chosen in back rooms, the Democrats purposely limit the number and orientation of the candidates they allow to run in various elective slots at every level through so-called “representative government”.
Bring your popcorn and vomit bags.
By the time they finish their debates with 40 or more yapping, yowling, carping nitwits going after each other, they'll be reduced to an audience of staff, press, and Tea Party protesters.
Beto needs something to do?
They can’t just bash Trump. If any of them are serious about actually winning the nomination (as opposed to simply fundraising) they will have to go after each other. Once that starts, it’s will be such a party! Imagine Booker getting all flustered and screaming at Elizabeth Warren! And Kamala Harris calling Andy Cuomo racist! Just good times ahead.
