  • Biden Can Participate In First Democratic Primary Debate If He Declares

    Vice President Joe Biden can participate in the first Democratic debate should he decide to run before then, CNN debate criteria released Monday confirms.

    Candidates must have an average of 1 percent of support in three national polls prior to the debate and must declare by Oct. 13 — the day of the debate, reported CNN. Biden’s been hovering around 20 percent in recent polls, so the only thing stopping him from participating in the debate is a declaration of his campaign.

    Biden said recently he’s unsure if he’s “there” for a presidential run.

    Democratic candidates Hillary Clinton, Martin O’Malley, Bernie Sanders, Jim Webb and Lincoln Chafee have been invited to the debate, which is the first sanctioned by the Democratic National Committee.

    CNN anchor Anderson Cooper will moderate the debate, with additional questions from CNN’s chief political correspondent Dana Bash and Spanish anchor Juan Lopez. Anchor Don Lemon will also ask questions submitted through Facebook.

    The debate will air at 9 p.m. on October 13.
