WASHINGTON The nation will once again hear from 20 Democratic presidential candidates later this month

The field is set for CNN's Democratic primary debates later this month.

Democratic presidential candidates trying to appeal to progressive voters with a call for "Medicare for All" are wrestling with the thorny question of how to pay for such a dramatic overhaul of the US health care system.

Another candidate who sparred with a competitor on stage was Castro, during a heated exchange with fellow Texan Beto O'Rourke, in which he called out the former congressman's stance on decriminalizing border crossings. Tim Ryan, the prospect of staying alive is growing more grim by the day.

European Union plans to offer Boris Johnson no-deal Brexit extension
Johnson is the runaway favorite to win the contest when the result is announced Tuesday. Most lawmakers, however, oppose a no-deal Brexit, and want to try to stop it happening.


Meanwhile, Sens. Bernie Sanders of Vermont and Elizabeth Warren of MA lead the July 30 lineup, allowing the two progressive icons to compete directly for the affections of the party's left flank. Elizabeth Warren, author Marianne Williamson and businessman Andrew Yang.

"I'm excited to add my voice to the next DNC debate in Detroit", Bullock said in a statement.

FAAN suspends aviation security heads over stowaway at Lagos airport

The duo clashed on race at the first debate, delivering the most talked about moment of the two nights and giving Harris a significant boost in both polling and fundraising.

Billionaire environmental activist Tom Steyer, Rep. Seth Moulton (Mass.) and Miramar, Fla. Mike Gravel, a leftist protest candidate whose teenager-run campaign crossed the 65,000-donor threshold to qualify but who failed to make a strong enough showing in the polls to get onstage. Now, Bullock is celebrating that he will make the second contest. The one-time challenger to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's grip on the Democratic Caucus raised less than $1 million in the second quarter of 2019 and he routinely checks in at under 1% in major national and early voting state polls.

Following Warren is Senator Kamala Harris, a result of her breakout debate performance in June, which recent polling, including Friday's NBC News survey, apparently reflects. Warren shined in the first debate, but was not given the opportunity to challenge or be challenged by a fellow candidate leading in the polls, let alone another progresssive. With little daylight between the candidates' messages of combating government corruption and elevating the middle class, the debate will give each a chance to distinguish themselves.
