The CNN–Des Moines Register debate is scheduled to take place at 9 p.m. on Jan. 14 on the campus of Drake University in Des Moines, Iowa. The event will be the last formal meeting among the top-five candidates before the Hawkeye State holds the first-in-the-nation caucuses on Feb. 3. 

To qualify for next week’s debate, candidates must garner the support of 225,000 unique donors and reach 5 percent support in at least four Democratic National Committee–approved polls or at least 7 percent support in two single-state polls focused on Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina or Nevada.
