Former Vice President Joe Biden will face off against Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) and South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg on the second night of the initial Democratic presidential debates this month, with Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) appearing on the first night, NBC News announced Friday.
This arrangement would leave Warren as the only top-tier candidate on stage the first night of the debates on June 26, denying her a chance to go head to head with her chief rivals, Biden and Sanders, at a time when her campaign appears ascendant.
Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) will also be in the debate with Biden and Sanders on June 27, the second night of the debate.
The lineup sets up what is almost certain to be a heated showdown on the second night of the debates, pitting four of the highest-profile Democratic presidential hopefuls against one another in a two-hour show.
