WASHINGTON | DNC chair: Qualifications for first debates coming this week
WASHINGTON (AP) — Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez says he’ll announce details of the first two presidential primary debates by the end of the week.
Perez says he plans to include a grassroots fundraising metric as part of the qualifying threshold.
He wants that to make the debate more inclusive than just using polling.
The first two debates are slated for June and July.
