The First Debate: Night Two!

The second night of the first Democratic debate airs tonight at 9 p.m. ET. It will be broadcast and streamed live from Miami by NBC News, MSNBC, and Telemundo, and will be moderated, just like last night, by José Diaz-Balart, Savannah Guthrie, Lester Holt, Rachel Maddow, and Chuck Todd.

The ten candidates who will appear in tonight's debate are: Michael Bennet, Joe Biden, Pete Buttigieg, Kirsten Gillibrand, Kamala Harris, John Hickenlooper, Bernie Sanders, Eric Swalwell, Marianne Williamson, and Andrew Yang.

Biden and Sanders will take center stage.

Each candidate will have " 60 seconds to answer questions and 30 seconds to respond to follow-ups. And there will be no opening statements, though candidates will have a chance to deliver closing remarks. The two-hour debates will zip by quickly, with five segments each night separated by four commercial breaks."

Here is a thread for all debate discussion before, during, and after the debate. I will probably be live-tweeting it! Or hiding under my bed! WE'LL SEE!
