Seven candidates qualified for the sixth Democratic 2020 presidential debate, scheduled for Dec. 19 at Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles, California.

Driving the news: All qualifying candidates have said on Twitter they won't attend the debate unless the host, Loyola Marymount University, reaches a deal with its workers in an ongoing labor dispute.

How it works: December's polling requirements included at least 4% of support in at least four DNC-approved national or early-state polls.

  • Candidates could also qualify by hitting 6% in two approved early-state polls.
  • Contenders need at least 200,000 unique donors, with a minimum of 800 donors in 20 states.
  • The event will be moderated by Politico's Tim Alberta and PBS' Judy Woodruff, Amna Nawaz and Yamiche Alcindor.

Candidates who will be on stage:

  1. Former Vice President Joe Biden
  2. Sen. Elizabeth Warren
  3. Sen. Bernie Sanders
  4. Mayor Pete Buttigieg
  5. Sen. Amy Klobuchar
  6. Billionaire Tom Steyer
  7. Entrepreneur Andrew Yang

Candidates who met donor qualifications, but not polling requirements:

  1. Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, who said on Monday that she will not attend the debate whether she qualifies in the polls or not. She said she plans to travel to South Carolina and New Hampshire instead.
  2. Sen. Cory Booker, who made it clear in September that his campaign needs more funding to stay in the game.
  3. Former HUD Secretary Julián Castro, who failed to qualify for the November debate stage weeks after threatening to drop out over waning fundraising.

Candidates that did not meet any qualifications:

Author Marianne Williamson, Former Gov. Deval Patrick, Former Rep. John Delaney, Former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg and Sen. Michael Bennet.

The Senate voted 48-47 on Thursday to confirm Trump nominee Christopher Waller to the Federal Reserve Board of Governors — filling one of the two vacant slots on the influential economic body.

Why it matters: It's one of the last marks left on the Fed board by Trump, who has nominated five of its six members.

Dublin-based Ryanair said it would add 75 more planes to an existing order for Boeing's 737 Max airplanes, a giant vote of confidence as Boeing seeks to revive sales of its best-selling plane after a 20-month safety ban following two fatal crashes.

The big picture: Ryanair's big order, on the heels of breakthrough vaccine news, is also a promising sign that the devastated airline industry might recover from the global pandemic sooner than expected.

Trump sets auction for Arctic refuge drilling rights before Biden takes office

The Interior Department on Thursday said it will auction oil drilling leases in Alaska's Arctic National Wildlife Refuge in early January.

Why it matters: The procedural step would make it harder for President-elect Joe Biden to thwart drilling in the region, even though any actual development is years away.
