We knew when Tyler Perry opened his studio he meant business so we are not surprised to learn that it will be the site of the upcoming fifth Democratic Party debate that is set for November 20.
Nine candidates have already qualified for the opportunity to verbally joust for the right to become the Democratic party’s candidate to challenge President Donald Trump.
The nine are former Vice President Joe Biden, Senator Elizabeth Warren, Senator Bernie Sanders, Senator Kamla Harris, Mayor Pete Buttigieg, Senator Amy Klobuchar, Andrew Yang, Senator Cory Booker and Tom Steyer.
Notwithstanding, the debate will be moderated by an all-female panel featuring Rachel Maddow, Andrea Mitchell, Kristen Weller and Ashley Parker.
According to the Washington Post and MSNBC, co-hosts of the event, the debate will be aired live on November 20 from 9-11 pm Eastern Standard Time.
The studio which is located in Atlanta sits on a former Confederate Army base which provides a touch of irony doesn’t it? However, it should provide more than enough space as it sits on over 330 acres and has twelve sound stages to choose from.
