To be eligible for the 12 debates planned in the 2020 cycle, candidates must receive support from at least 1 percent of respondents in three separate polls recognized by the DNC or receive campaign contributions from at least 65,000 unique donors.

With Swalwell’s qualification, four of the 21 candidates for 2020 have reportedly yet to meet either threshold.

The DNC has said that if more than 20 candidates qualify for the debates, those that meet both thresholds will be prioritized.
