Inslee’s future as a presidential candidate could hinge on second debate


In what could be a make-or-break moment for his presidential aspirations, Washington Governor Jay Inslee will take the stage July 21 for his second Democratic debate.

Inslee will appear on the second night of debates, sharing the stage with nine other candidates.

Those include two frontrunners, former Vice President Joe Biden and California Sen. Kamala Harris. However, it could be the last time on the debate stage for Inslee.

To qualify for the fall debates he will need to receive at least 2 percent support in four national polls and 130,000 unique donors to his campaign.

Inslee has struggled to reach 1 percent support in most polls.

The other 10 qualifiers for the July debates will take the stage July 20.

That debate will include two other, top polling candidates in Sen. Elizabeth Warren and Sen. Bernie Sanders.

Both the July debates will be broadcast on CNN.
