It’s time for round two as July 30 marks the start of the second Democratic debate, a two-night affair with 20 presidential candidates making their pitch to the American people. 

Things are revving up Detroit, the Motor City, as candidates take the stage for the second time.

“I’m looking forward to sharing the best of America on that stage, because we’re running to make sure that American can achieve her best,” said Beto O’Rourke, Democratic Presidential Candidate. 

“I’m looking forward to being on that stage with people that are vying for the most important job in our country,” said Senator and Democratic Presidential Candidate Cory Booker. 

With the Democratic National Committee setting stricter requirements for the third debate in September, the stakes couldn’t be higher.

Over the next two nights top-tier candidates will be aiming to fuel their lead while those lesser known will attempt to reverse course, or risk permanently stalling out.

“My name is is still lower than for several of the other candidates, So I want to make sure that I continue to introduce myself and talk about the vision that I have for the future of this country,” said Julian Castro, a Democratic Presidential Candidate. 

Governor Steve Bullock, South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg, John Delaney and John Hickenlooper, Amy Klobuchar and Beto O’Rourke are among Tuesday’s debate participants.

Tim Ryan and Marianne Williamson, as well as progressive candidates and frontrunners Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders, will also be among those going head to head for the first time. 

“I do not attack my fellow Democrats. And what I try to do is whenever I’m asked is talk about my vision, and try to talk about the positive vision of what we can do come 2020,” said Democratic Presidential Candidate, Senator Elizabeth Warren.
