One Democratic primary debate to be in Wisconsin

One of six scheduled Democratic primary debates will occur in Wisconsin, the Democratic National Committee said Thursday.

The debate will occur in February or March at an undetermined site. More information is expected to be announced soon.

Democratic National Committee Chair Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.) said the debate schedule reflects the Democratic Party’s diversity and values and will best position Democrats to win the White House next November.

“These six debates will not only give caucus goers and primary voters ample opportunity to hear from our candidates about their vision for our country’s future, they will highlight the clear contrast between the values of the Democratic Party which is focused on strengthening the middle class versus Republicans who want to pursue out of touch and out of date policies,” Wasserman Schultz said in a press release.

Here's the debate schedule as announced and the host of the event, with each state's Democratic party serving as co-host:

  • Oct. 13 – CNN – Nevada
  • Nov. 14 – CBS/KCCI/Des Moines Register – Des Moines, Iowa
  • Dec. 19 – ABC/WMUR – Manchester, N.H.
  • Jan. 17 – NBC/Congressional Black Caucus Institute – Charleston, S.C.
  • February or March – Univision/Washington Post – Miami, FL
  • February or March – PBS – Wisconsin
