The ninth Democratic presidential debate is set for Wednesday in Las Vegas, and it will feature a new billionaire on the stage.
While Mike Bloomberg qualified to make the debate stage for the first time, Tom Steyer, the other billionaire in the race who’s been a frequent presence at the Democratic debates, did not.
The debate is the last before the Nevada caucuses on Saturday.
Six candidates qualified for the debate — former Vice President Joe Biden; former New York Mayor Mike Bloomberg; Pete Buttigieg, the former mayor of South Bend, Indiana; Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn.; Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt.; Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass.
The event has five moderators — “NBC Nightly News” and “Dateline NBC” anchor Lester Holt; NBC News political director Chuck Todd, moderator of “Meet the Press”; NBC News chief White House correspondent Hallie Jackson, host of “MSNBC Live”; Noticias Telemundo senior correspondent Vanessa Hauc; and Jon Ralston, editor of The Nevada Independent.
