The third Democratic debate of the 2020 election season is set to begin at 8 p.m. ET on Thursday night at Texas Southern University, a historically black university in Houston, Texas.

While the summer's previous two debates had to be split into two-night events in order to accommodate all the qualifiers, only 10 candidates met the DNC's polling and donor thresholds for the three-hour event on Thursday. On stage will be former Vice President Joe Biden; Sens. Elizabeth Warren (Mass.), Bernie Sanders (Vt.), Cory Booker (N.J.), Amy Klobuchar (Minn.), and Kamala Harris (Calif.); South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg; entrepreneur Andrew Yang; former Texas Rep. Beto O'Rourke, and former Housing Secretary Julián Castro. You can see their podium placement here.
