Ten candidates have qualified to take the stage after meeting the Democratic National Committee’s polling and fundraising requirements, including hitting at least 3 percent in four approved polls or 5 percent in two early-state polls, as well as bringing in donations from at least 165,000 individual donors.
The candidates participating are Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar, New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker, South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, former Vice President Joe Biden, Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren, California Sen. Kamala Harris, businessman Tom Steyer, Hawaii Rep. Tulsi Gabbard and entrepreneur Andrew Yang.
Former Texas Rep. Beto O’Rourke dropped out of the race, whereas former Housing and Urban Development Secretary Julián Castro failed to meet polling requirements.
