DNC names 20 candidates who will appear on stage for first Democratic debate The Democratic National Committee set two ways for the candidates to qualify — fundraising and polling. To make the stage, candidates needed to have either at least 1 percent support in three qualifying polls, or provide evidence of at least 65,000 unique donors, with a minimum of 200 different donors in at least 20 states. The candidates marked with an asterisk qualified through both polling and grassroots fundraising thresholds, the DNC said. The others qualified through polling only. Those who did not meet the threshold for the first debate include: Montana Gov. Steve Bullock; former Alaska Sen.

A representative from NBC News Standards & Practices conducted the draw.

Candidates were divided into two groups: Those who polled on average at or above 2 percent through midnight on Wednesday, June 12, and those who polled on average below 2 percent through midnight on Wednesday, June 12.

A random draw then took place, pulling from each of the respective above groups to create two separate groupings of 10.

NBC News then designated each of the groupings to a specific debate night.

DNC chairman Tom Perez told MSNBC’s Hallie Jackson on Friday ahead of the drawing that he wanted the committee to avoid grouping lesser-known candidates together on one night and high-profile candidates on the other.

Here is what the Democrats who didn't make the debate stage will be doing those nights What do you do when you aren't invited to the party? That is the question three presidential candidates -- those of Montana Gov. Steve Bullock, Massachusetts Rep. Seth Moulton and Miramar, Florida, Mayor Wayne Messam -- have to answer ahead of the first Democratic debates later this month because the three Democrats did not qualify to be on stage with the 20 other Democratic contenders. Bullock's strategy: Go to the early states.

Perez announced 12 presidential primary debates to be held over the course of the 2020 cycle, with the first two occurring in June and July of 2019. To accommodate what is expected to be a historically large primary field, both debates will have the option of occurring over consecutive nights

The determination of the lineups comes a day after the DNC announced the 20 candidates who met the threshold to appear on stage for the two-night event. The debate, hosted by NBC News, MSNBC and Telemundo, will take place on June 26 and 27 at the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts in downtown Miami.
