Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg will appear on the debate stage for the first time in the Democratic primary.
MSNBC will air a Wednesday debate, where there are expected to be fireworks on the stage as Democratic candidates like Sens. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) and Bernie Sanders (I-VT) criticize the former mayor for buying his way into the Democratic debate and the primary.
“The debate will test Bloomberg’s ability to handle the scrutiny he has largely escaped until recently. It’ll be the first time he’ll share the stage with his Democratic rivals and be judged by voters in the sort of uncontrolled environment that even his money cannot buy,” reported NBC News.
The debate is slated to begin at 9 p.m. EST and will run until 11 p.m.

‘Recipe for disaster’: Officials in Florida city say they face ‘unimaginable’ potential death from COVID-19
Officials in the Florida city of Hialeah are warning that they are uniquely vulnerable to the COVID-19 pandemic and face the possibility of "unimaginable" death from the disease.
In interviews with The Daily Beast, the officials explained how their large population of senior citizens is at grave risk if Hialeah erupts as a major COVID-19 hotspot.
"I think it is going to get a lot worse," Hialeah Councilman Jesus Tundidor tells The Daily Beast. “The experts have been telling us to expect a peak [in Florida] near the end of the month. As we get more testing sites up and running, the more positive cases we will see. And that will create more fear."
Trump once again gives up the game on voting by mail: ‘Doesn’t work out well for Republicans’
President Donald Trump again admitted that he opposes voting by mail -- even during a deadly coronavirus pandemic -- because it would hurt Republicans.
Two weeks ago, the president admitted during a freewheeling "Fox & Friends" interview that "you’d never have a Republican elected in this country again" if Americans were allowed to vote by mail, as Democrats had requested as part of negotiations on a pandemic recovery package.
The president admitted his opposition to voting by mail -- which he and first lady Melania Trump did just last month -- was motivated by partisan gain.
The long history of US racism against Asian Americans, from ‘yellow peril’ to ‘model minority’ to the ‘Chinese virus’
In a recent Washington Post op-ed, former Democratic presidential candidate Andrew Yang called upon Asian Americans to become part of the solution against COVID-19.
In the face of rising anti-Asian racist actions – now at about 100 reported cases per day – Yang implores Asian Americans to “wear red, white, and blue” in their efforts to combat the virus.
