After ABC News hosted the third Democratic debate with 10 of the 2020 presidential candidates on Thursday, CNN announced the date and location of the next debate and revealed they will be co-hosting the event with the New York Times.

The debate will take place at Otterbein University on Oct. 15. Because billionaire Tom Steyer qualified for the debate, there is a chance it will be split into two nights. The moderators will be CNN anchors Anderson Cooper, Erin Burnett, and the New York Times' national editor Marc Lacey.

To qualify for the debate, candidates must meet a 2% polling threshold in four Democratic National Committee-approved polls and have at least 130,000 unique donors, including 400 donors per state from at least 20 states.

Other candidates who currently qualify for the debate include former Vice President Joe Biden, Sens. Cory Booker, Kamala Harris, Bernie Sanders and Amy Klobuchar, South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg, former Texas Rep. Beto O'Rourke, former Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Julin Castro, and tech entrepreneur Andrew Yang.
