The candidates who met the Democratic National Committee’s requirements for the third debate — held tonight in Houston, Texas — are former Vice President Joe Biden; Sens. Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, Kamala Harris, Amy Klobuchar and Cory Booker; South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg; former Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Julián Castro; entreprenuer Andrew Yang, and former Rep. Beto O’Rourke.

Each candidate needed at least two percent of the vote in four polls.

They all also needed 130,000 unique donors in order to qualify for this third primary debate.

The candidate field could shrink after Thursday night — as many outlets have noted — but the lower-ranked candidates (who didn’t meet qualifications for the debate in Houston) could possibly have a surge and rejoin the field in the next debate.
