  • 0

DES MOINES, Iowa. (KWWL) - CNN is partnering with The Des Moines Register to host a presidential debate in January in Iowa.

The debate will take place at Drake University in Des Moines on the 14th.

The Iowa caucuses kick off February 3, just three weeks after the debate.

However, the date of the debate could move, based on the schedule of the expected impeachment trial of President Donald Trump in the U.S. Senate, according to a DNC official.

This debate will follow one on December 19 in Los Angeles, hosted by PBS and Politico.

Qualification criteria for candidates, format, and moderators will be announced at a later date.
