Sanders unveils sweeping plan to wipe out college debt, costs

Sanders unveils sweeping plan to wipe out college debt, costs

She has mostly concentrated on neighboring Iowa, which holds the first nominating contest next year in the race to take on Republican President Donald Trump in the 2020 election.

Sander's proposal comes after similar legislation was unveiled by his rival for the Democratic presidential nomination, Senator Elizabeth Warren. Bernie Sanders won't be on the stage until Thursday.

Other candidates near the top of recent polls include Sens.

Another candidate who may fit the bill on the Wednesday debate is Mayor Bill de Blasio, who owns two properties worth more than $500,000 each, along with a $258,750 annual salary as mayor, although he reminds his supporters that he "is not a man of tremendous wealth".

That will mostly be up to the Democratic National Committee and the anchors from NBC, who will moderate.

Expect questions on the economy, the environment, gun control, health care, immigration (migrant children?), the military, education and trade.

How will candidates stand out among the crowd?

Ten presidential candidates, led by Sen. From there, the candidates were randomly picked for the two nights. It is a key moment in the long road to the 2020 election, marking the first time that Democrat candidates will face each other after months of individual campaigning.

The second debate will occur the following day on June 27 and feature Joe Biden, Vermont Sen.

But on opening night, Warren will take center stage. Warren will appear on the first night.

The debates will likely highlight a "central question" for the Democratic party, Vicino says: "How does the party align itself with public opinion and mainstream America?"

When are the primaries and caucuses?

For those who live in northern and eastern states, warm summer weather is finally arriving after a chilly, rainy spring.

Summer vacation is in full swing everywhere, and this is only the first of a scheduled 12 debates. "I'm still going to be part of our nightly feeding schedule, even during debate week".

When the focus is not on the front-runners, the rest of the candidates who have struggled to get above 1% in the polls will be trying to capitalise on the national spotlight.

The qualifying candidates were then split into two groups based on polling numbers. Andrew Yang, Beto O'Rourke, Sen. Kamala Harris, former housing secretary Julian Castro, former U.S. Rep. John Delaney and Pete Buttigieg, the mayor of South Bend, Indiana, all plan to visit.

And Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y., reportedly spent the weekend practicing in a converted vehicle dealership in Albany, N.Y. Further, she reportedly enjoys "a glass of whiskey at the end of the night" as her campaign trail comfort food.

California Sen. Kamala Harris took a prosecutor's case straight at President Donald Trump as she campaigned in SC.

Rep. Eric Swalwell, D-Calif., who will participate in Thursday's debate, told Fox News he is studying - but doesn't want to rehearse.

There will be half as many moderators as there will be candidates onstage each night: NBC Nightly News anchor Lester Holt, Today show anchor Savannah Guthrie, Telemundo and NBC Nightly News anchor Jose Diaz-Balart, Meet the Press moderator Chuck Todd and MSNBC anchor Rachel Maddow.
