Panel Of Four Women Moderators Set To Take The Stage In Atlanta's Democratic Debate
Ten Democratic presidential candidates will take to the debate stage at Tyler Perry studios in Atlanta Wednesday night. The candidates will answer questions from a panel of four women journalists.
While that may sound historic, it’s the third time in U.S. history where the moderators are all women, but it is the first time in this election cycle.
The moderators are:
- MSNBC hosts Rachel Maddow and Andrea Mitchell
- Washington Post White House reporter Ashley Parker
- NBC News White House correspondent Kristen Welker
Before the questions begin in Atlanta tonight, GPB’s Leah Fleming spoke with Fatima Goss Graves to preview the debate.
She is the president of the National Women’s Law Center and co-founder of the Time’s Up legal defense fund.
