Democratic debate lottery to be held at NBC's 30 Rock

A lottery to determine where candidates are placed on stage in the first Democratic presidential debate will take place Friday morning at NBC’s headquarters at 30 Rockefeller Plaza.

Democratic National Committee (DNC) staffers told representatives from the presidential campaigns of the plan to hold the lottery at NBC during a logistics call last week, according to three sources with knowledge of the call. The campaigns have been invited to send representatives to witness the drawing. Results will be announced right after the drawing is held.

Spokespeople at the DNC and NBC did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

Candidates and their campaigns have until Wednesday to qualify for the debates, either by showing at least 1 percent support in three qualifying polls or by attracting 65,000 individual donors, with at least 200 of those donors coming from 20 different states. At least 14 candidates have met both the polling and donor criteria, guaranteeing them one of the 20 spots on the debate stage. Six other candidates have met the polling threshold, without having reached the donor threshold.

Four candidates — Montana Gov. Steve Bullock (D), Rep. Seth Moulton (D-Mass.), Miramar, Fla., Mayor Wayne Messam and former Sen. Mike Gravel (D-Alaska) — have not yet met either threshold.

Standing on your tippy toes in the debate's group photo makes you look taller and more electable and not silly at all.

6. I look forward to some kind of complaining from someone and their supporters.

 

Don’t know who, or what for yet, but there will be complaining.
