WASHINGTON (AP) — Democrats will hold six presidential debates starting Oct. 13 in Nevada.

That’s according to the Democratic National Committee, which released the debate plans as Republicans prepare for their first debate Thursday evening.

Four debates are planned for early primary states in advance of the Iowa caucuses on Feb. 1.

That decision has already prompted complaints from candidates trying to challenge front-runner Hillary Rodham Clinton for the nomination.

Dates for the final two gatherings are not yet set. But the committee says they will be in February or March.

  1. Can someone out there explain to me how Ted Cruz can run for Presidents? I thought in order to be President you have to be born on Americsn Soil. I thought he was born in Canada. I’m sure I missed something, so someone please enlighten me to what I’ve missed.

    • He was actually born in Alberta Canada his father came here from Cuba in 1957 I believe
      but since they were US citizens at the time of Cruz’s birth… there you go

    • specialt757 on said:

      “The Constitution gives three eligibility requirements to be president: one must be 35 years of age, a resident “within the United States” for 14 years, and a “natural born Citizen,” a term not defined in the Constitution.

      That lack of precision has given rise to controversy and legal challenges, but has never resulted in a definitive determination by the U.S. Supreme Court.”

      His citizenship should have to be ruled on by the U.S. Supreme Court. Since the Constitution doesn’t say both parents have to be U.S. citizens, it’s left to a higher court to determine his naturalization as a U.S. citizen. Although his father went to school here, nowhere does it show he obtained U.S. citizenship. He was born in Cuba. If both parents are U.S. citizens but worked or lived abroad, he would be considered a U.S. citizen, that is my understanding.

  2. If Chris Mathews moderates I wonder if he can get an answer to the Debbie Schultz (dear in the headlights question) “whats the difference between a democrat and a socialist?”

  3. Clinton, Bernie, O’Malley, big head Webb and Chafee, Biden?

    Clinton needs to answer voter’s questions now while she is campaigning. How else would we learn where she stands on the issues that are most important to avid voters?

    I have been watching Bernie for more than 17 years and notice that he ALWAYS talks about and supports the same issues: the poor, the middleclass, the working poor, the disabled, vets, the right to vote and my right to keep my guns.

    Although I watch enough political news, I still do not know enough about O’Malley. I had to Google him just to know where he stands on the issues.

    I like Webb but I cannot support all his issues. He has done some great work though.

    My spouse has always chided me for appreciating Chafee because he has been in every Party. I told him that is because Chafee was on a mission and has now found his home. Nonetheless, I still will not cheer for him to win the nomination.

    We have always liked Biden. (Both he and Dick Gephardt were my Mother’s favorites.) He is more than capable to be the president of these divided states but I doubt that he will receive the nomination.

    Although I am anxious to see a woman become president of these divided states, I am yet to decide if I support Clinton.
    Bernie has always spoken my language or at least something I can embrace.

    So, so far, I am stilling siding with the Bern!
