ROCKVILLE, MD — Former U.S. Rep. John Delaney is one of 20 presidential candidates to qualify for the second round of 2020 primary debates, according to the Democratic National Committee.
CNN’s Democratic presidential debate will be held in Detroit, Michigan, at 8 p.m. July 30 and 31. Delaney, a Potomac resident, will be on stage the first night.
The candidates who made it to round two largely remained the same from last month’s debates. The only difference is Montana Gov. Steve Bullock (he didn’t appear in the first round of debates in June) will replace California Rep. Eric Swalwell, who dropped out of the 2020 race earlier this month.
When it comes to his mark on the 2020 campaign, RealClearPolitics’ polling average shows that Delaney has 1 percent of support from New Hampshire Democratic primary voters. The poll was conducted by CNN and the University of New Hampshire between July 8 and 15.
The former Maryland congressman was the first Democrat to announce for president, back in July 2017. His platform includes fostering business and technology, strengthening the social safety net and investing in infrastructure, along with reforming education, health care and immigration.
