Montana Gov. Steve Bullock (D), who was aced out of appearing in the first presidential candidate forum scheduled for Miami late next week after it had originally appeared that he had secured a podium, has qualified via the polling option for the second debate. The Detroit forum is scheduled for July 30-31.
The development means that at least one of the participants in the first debate will not return for the second. Polling is the tie-breaking factor, so whoever lags in the sanctioned surveys behind Gov. Bullock, likely New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, will not appear on either night of the Detroit debate series.
