Tulsi Gabbard's committee just announced that she has qualified for the November presidential debate at Tyler Perry Studios in Atlanta on Nov. 20 based on today's Quinnipiac poll out of Iowa.
NBC reported " candidates will each be asked a balanced number of questions, event hosts MSNBC and The Washington Post announced Wednesday... Candidates will have 75 seconds to answers questions posed to them and 45 seconds for follow-ups at the moderators' discretion. Candidates should be able to respond if they're referred to by name by another candidate, but that will be at the moderators' discretion, the announcement said. Candidates will have one minute and 15 seconds for closing arguments. The announcement about balanced speaking time comes after sizable differences in the amount of time the candidates had to talk during the previous four debates. In October's debate, Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren got the most speaking time, with just under 23 minutes' worth, while billionaire activist Tom Steyer got the least, at just over seven minutes. "
