The 2nd and final night of the first Democratic debate will take place beginning at 9:00 PM in Miami. Aside from those that will appear on stage, everything will be the same as we noted last night:
The prospective nominees will be placed on stage based on a polling average calculated earlier this month, with those polling highest at the center of the stage.
The debate will be hosted and broadcast by NBC News, MSNBC and Telemundo. Broadcast time is 9:00PM to 11:00PM Eastern. The moderators are Savannah Guthrie, Lester Holt, Chuck Todd, Rachel Maddow and José Diaz-Balart.
There will be no opening statements. Candidates will have 60 seconds to answer questions and 30 seconds to respond to follow-ups. At the end of the two hours, each candidate can make closing remarks.
Tonight will feature four of the top five candidates in the polls to this point. Here's a New York Times overview of each candidate and some of what to watch for.
