CNN, the network slated to host the second round of debates in Detroit on July 30 and 31, announced the roster of qualified candidates on Wednesday. Like the first round of debates, that list features 20 candidates. This time around, however, Bullock will be on stage. Rep.

Joe Sestak (D-Pa.), will also be absent from the debate stage, though both men only entered the Democratic nominating contest recently. 

CNN on Thursday will conduct a draw to determine on which day the candidates will debate. 

To qualify for the first two Democratic debates, candidates had to either score 1 percent in at least 3 polls or amass support from 65,000 unique donors. 

Bullock failed to qualify for the first debate after the Democratic National Committee (DNC) said it would exclude so-called open-ended polls from its criteria, including a January Washington Post/ABC News poll that showed Bullock at 1 percent.

Bullock’s campaign celebrated his debate qualification on Wednesday. 

“I’m excited to add my voice to the next DNC debate in Detroit. We need to have a conversation that isn’t detached from the realities people face in their everyday lives — the need for affordable healthcare, quality public schools, and an economy that ensures everyone has a fair shot at success,” Bullock said in a statement.

While Bullock may have qualified for the second round of debates, he’s among several candidates at risk of missing out on the primary debates this fall. To qualify for those, candidates will have to collect contributions from at least 130,000 unique donors and notch 2 percent in at least four polls.
