The debate is slated to take place in Houston on Sept. 12. Unlike the last two Democratic debates, it will be a one-night event and the candidates will be given more time on stage — three hours compared to two hours in each of the first two debates.

Eleven other candidates failed to make the cut for the Houston debate, having fallen short of the more-rigorous qualifying criteria set by the DNC. One of those candidates, Sen.
