Democrats Abroad SMA invites members of the community to come together to watch the first televised Democratic debate at the San Miguel Playhouse, to be held over 2 nights on June 26th & 27th. “We are so excited that the San Miguel Playhouse has partnered with us to provide an evening that we hope will make the audience feel as though they are really at the debate.” according to Hope Bradberry, Democrats Abroad Chapter Chair.
The candidates will be chosen by a recently released rule developed by the DNC and NBC News to prevent the appearance of an undercard debate. The rule states:
"The final list of debate participants (after any tie-breaking procedure is executed, if necessary) will be divided into two groups: candidates with a polling average of 2% or above, and those with a polling average below 2%," according to a rule. "Both groups will be randomly divided between Wednesday night and Thursday night, thus ensuring that both groups are represented fairly on each night."
Admission to the event is free. There will be a cash bar available and snacks for purchase. We do kindly request that people please RSVP below.
