Eyes are on Iowa as the 2020 Democratic presidential candidates gather there for the seventh debate. The Iowa caucuses take place in less than three weeks. It’s the first contest of the primary.

Only six candidates qualified for Tuesday’s debate, hosted by CNN and The Des Moines Register: former Vice President Joe Biden, former South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg, Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, billionaire business executive Tom Steyer and Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren.

The latest polls show mixed results, with no clear favorite. What’s more, Tuesday is the first debate that will not have any candidates of color onstage — a fact some have attributed to the DNC’s qualification standards.

Since December’s debate, three more candidates have dropped out: New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker, entrepreneur Marianne Williamson and former housing Secretary Julián Castro. (Here’s a full list of who is still running.)

Follow NPR’s live coverage of the debate, with real-time analysis of the candidates’ remarks, above.
