Pre-debate Biden ad deflects criticism of Obama

Pre-debate Biden ad deflects criticism of Obama

This time around, only half the amount of candidates qualified as the 20 who took stage for the June debates in Miami, Florida and July debates in Detroit, Michigan.

And tonight, for the first time, front-runners Joe Biden, Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders will all share the stage together.

Ed Rendell, the former Democratic governor of Pennsylvania, slammed Senator Elizabeth Warren (D., Mass.) in the pages of the Washington Post on Thursday for touting her commitment to grassroots fundraising after pocketing millions in donations from the wealthiest people in the country.

The poll, conducted by Change Research and sponsored by Investingin.us and the AAPI Victory Fund, was released in connection to the first-ever AAPI Democratic Presidential Forum held in Costa Mesa, California. "The other seven candidates, meanwhile, are under growing pressure to prove they're still in the race to take on President Donald Trump next November", adds the AP. Also, ABC has decided that candidates will be allowed to make opening statements, but there will be no closing statements as there has been in previous debates.

ABC News' chief anchor George Stephanopoulos, World News Tonight anchor/managing editor David Muir, ABC News correspondent Linsey Davis and Univision anchor Jorge Ramos will moderate the event, which will be broadcast exclusively on ABC and Univision (the latter with Spanish translation). It will also stream ABC News Live, ABCNews.com, Good Morning America and FiveThirtyEight websites and mobile phone apps, as well as Hulu Live, The Roku Channel, Facebook Watch, AppleTV, Amazon Fire TV, YouTube, Apple News, and Twitter.

The candidates for tonight are former Vice President Joe Biden, Sen.

India says it prefers direct talks between Afghanistan government and the Taliban
That is the time when a hijacked plane slammed into the World Trade Center's north tower on September 11, 2001. The 9/11 anniversary is a sensitive day in Afghanistan's capital and one on which attacks have occurred.

The September debate format will be one minute and 15 seconds for direct responses to questions from moderators and 45 seconds for responses and rebuttals.

In the first two debates, varying candidates have picked fights with Biden - Harris on busing, Booker on criminal justice, and so on.

That could produce some sparks, given Warren's recent rise in the polls, and a history of disagreement between Warren and Biden on certain issues.

How many candidates will there be?

So the spotlight is going to be even hotter on the 10 candidates who made the cut for Thursday's debate in Houston. Cory Booker; South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg; Vermont Sen.

One more contender, billionaire activist Tom Steyer, managed to qualify last week for the October debate.
