New Fox News polls in Nevada and South Carolina showed activist Tom Steyer with double-digit support. His strength in these two surveys has qualified him for the January 14 Democratic debate.
Steyer is the 6th candidate to qualify. He'll join Joe Biden, Pete Buttigieg, Amy Klobuchar, Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren on the stage. The deadline to qualify is Friday; no other candidates are likely to make it.
