Eight candidates have qualified for the November debate so far, including: Former vice president Joe Biden; Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.); Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.); Sen. Kamala D. Harris (D-Calif.); Mayor Pete Buttigieg, of South Bend, Ind.; Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.); billionaire activist Tom Steyer; and entrepreneur Andrew Yang.
