Julian Castro has made the cut…
The 44-year-old Mexican American politician and presidential hopeful is one of 10 Democratic candidates who’ve qualified for the next debate.
ABC News and Univision will give each of the candidates slightly extra time to respond to questions than they were given at the last event, and they’ll be able to make opening statements but not closing remarks.
Since no more than 10 candidates made the cut to qualify, there will be just a single debate, on September 12.
It’ll air from 8:00-11:00 pm ET on ABC and Univision from Texas Southern University’s Health & PE Center in Houston.
ABC News has also announced where the candidates will be standing on the stage. The order, from left to right, will be: Amy Klobuchar, Corey Booker,Pete Buttigieg, Bernie Sanders, Joe Biden,Elizabeth Warren, Kamala Harris, Andrew Yang, Beto O’Rourkeand Castro.
Candidates leading in the polls — Biden and Warren — were placed at the center, with the other candidates fanning out from that point based on their ranking.
ABC Newschief anchor George Stephanopoulos, World News Tonight anchor David Muir, correspondent Linsey Davisand Univision anchor Jorge Ramoswill moderate.
Candidates will be given one minute and 15 seconds to respond to direct questions, and 45 seconds for other responses and rebuttals, ABC News said. That is a bit more time than CNNallocated for its debate coverage on July 30-31, when candidates were given a minute to respond and 30 seconds for rebuttals. Some critics complained that candidates weren’t given enough time or had to abruptly finish when their time expired.
