Democratic Presidential Candidates Take the Stage in Detroit

Democrats are taking the stage in Detroit for the second round of presidential candidate debates.

All eyes are set on Michigan, as candidates try to sway voters in what was proven to be a battleground state in 2016.

This debate is spread out over two days, with 20 contenders total, 10 per day.

It’s a chance for voters to hear the policies and platforms of the many candidates in the democratic field.

The doors are open and the audience is filing in at the historic Fox Theatre in Detroit.

The second democratic debate of the 2020 presidential election starts in just two hours.

This is going to be a crucial debate for the candidates because the next debate in September will have stricter guidelines on who makes the stage.

It will be based on polling numbers so Tuesday and Wednesday are these candidate’s last chance to make waves.

They also will be performing in front of an audience of Michiganders, a crucial state in the race and one where they know they will have to fight to win back.

“What are you going to do to help the Great Lakes you know? this is so vital of an issue to us because so much of our economy is based on pure Michigan right,” Attorney General Dana Nessel said.

“I think that they just propose a lot of ideas that cost a lot of money and they don’t talk about how they are going to pay for it and we all know you and I are going to pay for everyone’s going to pay for that,” says Michigan GOP chair, Laura Cox.

Again the debate is set to begin at 8 p.m. with 10 candidates on stage Tuesday and another 10 Wednesday.
