      Six debates will take place in 2019, DNC Chairman Tom Perez said, and six in 2020.

      Given the potential size of the Democratic field, Perez said the DNC would split the debates into separate events on back-to-back nights, with participation on a particular evening determined by a random selection open to the public.

      That’s in contrast to the early Republican presidential debates in 2016, when the GOP held an undercard debate on the same day before the primetime debate featuring the major candidates.

      We expect that large field, and we welcome that large field,” Perez said. “Drawing lots strikes me as the fairest way to make sure everyone gets a fair shake.”

        from having to choose whether to put Bernie in the “undercard” or “primetime” slot. So they can avoid the appearance of favoritism. However, you gotta figure one of the debates will get more viewers than the other. If Bernie consistently ends up on the wrong end of that, we’ll know it wasn’t an accident.

      …the best.
