The progressive candidates challenging Nancy Pelosi for her congressional seat have agreed to a debate.
The debate, set to occur on August 17th at 9pm EST, will be hosted by Real Progressive’s Savage Joy.
In California’s “jungle primary” system, the top two candidates proceed to the general election, regardless of political party. This means it could be possible for two Democrats to face off in the general election.
Progressives are worried about a potential repeat of 2018, where Pelosi faced 3 democratic challengers only for none of them to marshal the 19,000 votes required to beat the Republican and advance to the general election.
