NBC on Friday set the lineups for the first round of the 2020 Democratic debates that will take place on June 26 and 27 in Miami.

Details: A random drawing, which was closed to the press but attended by campaign officials, took place at NBC's 30 Rock offices in New York and looked to randomly divide the lineup for both debate nights between the candidates polling above and below 2%.

  • June 26: Cory Booker, Julián Castro, Bill de Blasio, John Delaney, Tulsi Gabbard, Jay Inslee, Amy Klobuchar, Beto O'Rourke, Tim Ryan, and Elizabeth Warren
  • June 27: Michael Bennet, Joe Biden, Pete Buttigieg, Kirsten Gillibrand, Kamala Harris, John Hickenlooper, Bernie Sanders, Eric Swalwell, Marianne Williamson, and Andrew Yang
