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.

DNC names 20 candidates who will appear on stage for first Democratic debate

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.

But these eight Democrats risk appearing like they are skating onto the debate stage because of a really If that didn ’ t do the trick, the final tie-breaking measure would be the number of donors, in Note: Only polls that meet the Democratic National Committee’s criteria are included in these graphics.

Which Democratic Presidential Candidates Have Qualified for the First Debates ? By Ed Kilgore. There will be a lot of donkeys on the stage in the first couple of two-day rounds of candidate debates this summer.

Bullock's strategy: Go to the early states.

Bullock plans to hit both Iowa and New Hampshire while the entire Democratic political world is in Miami, his spokeswoman told CNN on Tuesday, headlining events and televised townhalls in both key early states.

Bullock, on Wednesday, will hold a televised town hall in Iowa hosted by WHO Channel 13 and moderated by Iowa journalist Dave Price.

He will then travel to New Hampshire on Thursday and headline a televised town hall hosted by WMUR.

Both events will air locally before the actual Democratic debate.

"I'm excited to be on the ground in Iowa and New Hampshire next week, talking directly to voters about the issues that matter most to them," Bullock said in a statement. "I've won in a Trump state because I've showed up and listened to voters where they are -- and that's exactly what I'll do at these town halls and for the next 230 days until the first voters express their preference."

NBC announces lineup of Democrats for each of the two nights for first 2020 debate

NBC announces lineup of Democrats for each of the two nights for first 2020 debate To decide the match-ups, candidates' names were drawn manually at NBC News' headquarters at 30 Rockefeller Plaza in New York. One representative of each of the qualifying campaigns was invited to attend the draw along with officials from the Democratic National Committee. Campaign representatives saw their respective candidate’s paper slip with their name on it before it was folded and placed inside the box. A representative from NBC News Standards & Practices conducted the draw.

On Thursday, 20 Democrats qualified for the first of the Democratic presidential debates — but three major candidates missed the mark. Moulton has previously acknowledged that he wouldn' t make the debate stage .

Here ’s What to Expect. The first night will be Elizabeth Warren’s to lose, while the second The first Democratic presidential debates will be hosted by NBC News, MSNBC and Telemundo Ms. Harris, who will face off against those three men and six other candidates, has an opportunity to present her

Moulton will take a different tact and head to Miami anyway, despite not making the debate stage.

That strategy has clear benefits: Miami will be a media circus and Moulton, who is already a frequent guest on cable TV, will be able to get a sizable amount of media coverage despite not being on the debate stage.

But it takes Moulton away from the key early states and highlights the fact that he won't be on the stage with the other Democrats.

Even still, missing the debate stage -- and raising questions about the debate process -- has been good for Moulton.

"On Thursday the DNC told us we wouldn't be part of the first debate," Moulton spokesman Matt Corridoni said last week. "On Friday we had our biggest fundraising day since launch."

A Messam spokeswoman did not respond to CNN's request for comment when asked what their campaign would be doing on both nights of the debates.

But Messam, in an interview with the South Florida Sun Sentinel, said that he will be in Miami during the first night of debates, in order to appear on MSNBC, but has not determined what he will do on the second night of debates.

"I'm not one of the candidates you'll see on the town halls yet. I'm still waiting for my invitation," Messam said Monday at an event in Washington about the June debates. "But I'll continue to press forward."
