Another Democratic debate is slated for Sunday, March 15 in Phoenix, days before the Arizona primary, the Democratic National Committee announced, for which the three remaining 2020 candidates must earn at least 20% of the delegates awarded so far.

The big picture: This will be the 11th debate during the primary process, falling after Super Tuesday, where results could winnow the field of candidates even further. Specifics have yet to be announced regarding qualifications. CNN, Univision and CHC BOLD, the political arm of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus, are expected to host.

Details: The debate will air at 8 p.m. EST on CNN, CNN en Español, CNN International and Univision. CNN's Dana Bash and Jake Tapper will be joined by Univision's Jorge Ramos as hosts.

  • The Democratic National Committee announced the threshold for the debate on Friday: The three contenders still in the race — Sen. Bernie Sanders, former Vice President Joe Biden and Rep. Tulsi Gabbard — must earn at least 20% of the delegates awarded so far through the deadline on the day of the debate.
  • Biden and Sanders have already hit that threshold, with 566 and 501 pledged delegates respectively.
  • Gabbard, has earned two delegates from the U.S. territory American Samoa.
