Skip to comments.Steyer qualifies for December Democratic debate

Billionaire philanthropist Tom Steyer has qualified for the December Democratic presidential debate after amassing the support of more than 200,000 donors, his campaign said Tuesday.
Steyer is the seventh candidate to qualify for the sixth primary debate, which is set to take place in Los Angeles on Dec. 19.
The six other candidates include former Vice President Joe Biden, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg (D), Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) and Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.).
Candidates faced the strictest criteria to date to qualify for the December debate.
They must collect contributions from at least 200,000 unique donors and register at least 4 percent in four polls approved by the Democratic National Committee (DNC) or 6 percent in two early-state surveys.
Steyer met the polling threshold last month after notching 5 percent in a Quinnipiac University poll of likely Democratic primary voters in South Carolina. With his campaigns announcement on Tuesday that he had surpassed the donor threshold, Steyer appears to have secured his place on the debate stage.

What about Julian Castro? who is going to speak for “trans” biological males who need abortions if he’s not there?
Cory “Spartacus” Booker hasn’t qualified? Hmmmm........
I see Tulsi didnt qualify. The clown circus is shrinking.
Giving proof to the old adage “money talks and bullshit walks”.
Booker is like a really bad robot, he is so scripted, dull and monotone. He does not connect with voters and he actually believes people like him. He is like DeBlasio in a way, he believes he was elected in NJ because people like him, but in reality, he was elected because he has the coveted D after his name. Just like DeBlasio in NY
And like most Dems, including Joe Biden, he spent decades in public service without accomplishing anything meaningful. Newark is still shiathole just like when he found it. And has accomplished nothing meaningful in the senate.
Not enough fitness videos?
Is Mini Mike going to be in the debates?
I would like to see shorty on stage with Tulsi and Warren, who both are taller then he is.
That would be an interesting optic
Good one. Though you have to admit, thats a better strategy than pod casting your dental cleaning.
Who, on earth, will watch a Democrat debate [or for that matter, a GOP debate] on Dec. 19th, 6 days before Christmas?
These people are crazy and stupid. Stupid, because they have no concept of the emotions behind our love of Christmas and of Jesus Christ. Stupid because most people are deeply into preparations for the winter holidays which includes Hanukah. Crazy because they think we are actually interested in hearing what these leftists think, as if we do not already know.
Amy Combeater must be running for VP at this point, Harris is just running on fumes.
I keep waiting for her to start talking about this great guy called the bhagwan.
Listening to Steyer speak is as exciting as watching paint dry.
No Andrew Yang to give us $1000 a month? If I recall correctly, he said we are already past a point of no return with global warming,and have to evacuate low lying areas of major cities.
We’ll miss his insight and wisdom.
He’ll be the juggling clown with the red nose on stage left.
He must have skeletons to have tossed his hat in at this late date. There’s still time for any scandal to come out.
