Here are the 20 candidates looking to keep their chances alive during the 2nd Democratic Debate

The Motor City has its 2nd Democratic Debate participants ready to go.

The 20 Democrats that will debate on stage July 30-31 in Detroit, Michigan were announced last night and there’s only one lineup change from the June debate.

To qualify for the July debate, candidates had to certify to the DNC that they achieved 1% in three approved polls or received 65,000 unique donations with 200 donors each from 20 separate states.

In alphabetical order, the candidates that made the cut are the following. This list also includes the candidates’ odds to win the Democratic nomination, via Bovada.

  1. Michael Bennet – Colorado Senator (+10000)
  2. Joe Biden – Former Vice President  (+375)
  3. Cory Booker – New Jersey Senator (+3300)
  4. Steve Bullock – Montana Governor (no odds available)
  5. Pete Buttigieg – South Bend, Indiana Mayor (+550)
  6. Julián Castro – Former Housing and Urban Development Secretary (+5000)
  7. Bill de Blasio – New York Mayor (+10000)
  8. John Delaney – Former Maryland Representative (+10000)
  9. Tulsi Gabbard – Hawaii Representative (+2200)
  10. Kirsten Gillibrand – New York Senator (+10000)
  11. Kamala Harris – California Senator (+225)
  12. John Hickenlooper – Former Colorado Governor (+10000)
  13. Jay Inslee – Washington Governor (+10000)
  14. Amy Klobuchar – Minnesota Senator (+4000)
  15. Beto O’Rourke – Former Texas Representative (+2000)
  16. Tim Ryan – Ohio Representative (+10000)
  17. Bernie Sanders – Vermont Senator (+650)
  18. Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren (+450)
  19. Marianne Williamson – Author (+10000)
  20. Andrew Yang – Businessman (+1000)

Bullock, who was not in the first Democratic debates, will replace California Rep. Eric Swalwell following his campaign dissolution earlier this month.

The Montanian announced his qualification on MSNBC Wednesday morning.

“I’m going to be in the second debate in two weeks. I’m really excited about it.”

Neither Miramar, Florida Mayor Wayne Messam nor Massachusetts Rep. Seth Moulton made the July debate cut. Both were also missing from the June debate.

Other names to miss the cut include former Pennsylvania Rep. Joe Sestak and billionaire Tom Steyer.

Steyer, who didn’t announce his campaign until earlier this month, never planned to qualify for the July debate. Instead, the former hedge fund manager has focused his sights on the September debates.

“Given that we entered the race just days before the deadline, we never expected to make the July debates. Since launching the campaign, our focus has been qualifying for the September debates in Houston,” Steyer’s spokesman said.

Like the June Democratic debate, the July debate will be over the course of two nights with ten candidates on stage per night.

To determine each night’s lineup, CNN is doing a live, public drawing tonight. “The Draw,” hosted by Anderson Cooper, will be televised at 8 p.m. ET.
