Represent NYC: Discussion on Democratic Primary Debate

August 11, 2019

The first two 2020 Democratic Presidential Candidate debates took place in June and July, with a record breaking 26 candidates (only 20 qualified for the debates). With the qualifications getting stricter for the third debate, the fight is only getting tougher, forcing some candidates to drop out of the race. Candidates Joe Biden, Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders currently hold the top three preferred Democratic candidates, but this is not stopping other Presidential hopefuls like New York Senator Kristen Gillibran and New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio from continuing to campaign for their Presidential run. Even with many trying to turn the White House blue, do they stand a chance in the 2020 Election?

Represent NYC, guest-host Christina Greer, is joined by Brigid Bergin, City Hall and Politics Reporter for WNYC, Jeff C. Mays, Reporter for the NY Times, and Matt McDermott, Director of Whitman Insight Strategies, to discuss the Democratic Primary Debate.

Aired August 11th, 2019.
