Univisión Partners with California Democratic Party for Presidential Forum
November 16, 2019
The California Democratic Party has partnered with Univisión, the largest provider of Spanish-language news, to host a Democratic presidential candidates forum in November. The event is not a debate, but it will adhere to DNC rules when it comes to the participants. The DNC has said candidates must reach at least 2% support in several polls and earn donations from 130,000 individuals spread across many states. “It is a forum that will focus on issues important to Californians and to the Latino community,” acting Party Chair Alexandra Gallardo-Rooker said in a statement Friday. “We think it will be a fantastic addition to that convention and will once again highlight the importance of the Latino vote and California’s impact in the Presidential Primary.” Gallardo-Rooker is the first Latina to ever lead a major political party in California. California Democratic Party delegates will pick a replacement for Gallardo-Rooker, who has served as chairwoman since December when the previous chairman resigned over allegations of sexual and workplace harassment and retaliation. The forum will take place at the Long Beach Arena on Saturday, November 16th.
