Georgia’s presidential debate will be hosted by four women moderators 

The fifth Democratic presidential debate will feature an all-female cast of moderators when it arrives in Georgia next month. 

The four moderators of the Nov. 20 event co-hosted by MSNBC and The Washington Post are: Rachel Maddow, Andrea Mitchell, Kristen Welker and Ashley Parker.  

With more stringent requirements, the debate seems set to feature a smaller lineup of candidates than the 12 who qualified for last week’s showdown in Ohio. 

So far, eight candidates have qualified for the debate stage. It will also be a two-hour event, rather than stretch three hours like the Ohio one.

What’s still unknown is the location and venue of the debate. Party leaders say it’s expected to be held in metro Atlanta, but the exact site has yet to be announced. 

Will Democrats use the debate to push into the ‘burbs?
