How Michael Bloomberg defends against expected attacks from his Democratic rivals could impact how well he does on Super Tuesday, where he is placing a big bet, analysts say.

The ninth Democratic presidential debate is set for Wednesday in Las Vegas, and it will feature a new billionaire on the stage. While Mike Bloomberg qualified to make the debate stage for the first time, Tom Steyer, the other billionaire in the race who's been a frequent presence at the Democratic debates, did not.
Mike Bloomberg is in. In a development that promises to shake up the race, the wealthy entrepreneur and former mayor of New York City qualified for Wednesday’s Democratic presidential debate with just hours to spare after a new poll showed him surging nationally into the runner-up position behind Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt.
At least six Democratic presidential contenders will meet in a pivotal debate in Nevada on Wednesday, three days before the state’s voters make their picks in an unsettled and tight nominating race for the White House.
The survey by NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist gives the former New York mayor enough polls showing him over 10% nationally to be on stage for the next Democratic debate Wednesday in Nevada.
For the first time this cycle, Michael Bloomberg will participate in a Democratic presidential primary debate — and it promises to be scrappy. The former New York mayor qualified for the Nevada Democratic presidential primary debate just in the nick of time, getting the last poll he needed just before tonight’s deadline. Five other candidates will join him on the stage on Wednesday night: former Vice President Joe Biden; former South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg; Sen. Amy Klobuchar; Sen. Bernie Sanders; and Sen. Elizabeth Warren.
Sen. Bernie Sanders won narrowly, but can he expand his base? Pete Buttigieg again did well, but in another largely white state. And the story of the night was Sen. Amy Klobuchar's third-place finish.
Victorious in New Hampshire on the heels of a popular-vote win in Iowa, Bernie Sanders has forced the Democratic establishment to reckon with a prospect it has been dismissing: He's currently the favorite to win the party's presidential nomination.
Well, things largely went as expected this evening. Sanders finished first with 26 percent of the vote and Buttigieg was a close second with 24 percent. The one big surprise of the evening? Klobuchar’s third-place surge. She’s set to finish only about 4 points behind Buttigieg, which means she significantly overperformed her polls going into New Hampshire (she was polling at 10 percent in our average). That’s in large part thanks to late-deciders swinging her way.
Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders clinched a hard-fought victory in the first-in-the-nation primary in New Hampshire, as he battles with Pete Buttigieg to claim the mantle as the front-runner for the Democratic nomination.
Tuesday's primary in this Northeastern state may mark the final day of nearly 50 years of unparalleled influence for Iowa and New Hampshire as the one-two kickoff contests in the Democratic presidential nominating process.
According to early estimates out of Iowa, former South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg won 14 pledged delegates to the Democratic National Convention, Sen. Bernie Sanders won 12, Sen. Elizabeth Warren won eight, former Vice President Joe Biden won six and Sen. Amy Klobuchar won one. But how did Klobuchar snag a national delegate when her share of the statewide vote was 12 percent,1 below the delegate threshold of 15 percent? It’s because she got more than 15 percent in Iowa’s 4th Congressional District, and around two-thirds of Iowa’s delegates are awarded based on results at the district level, not the statewide level.
In the final sprint ahead of Tuesday’s first-in-the-nation primary contest in New Hampshire, potentially the first decisive outcome this cycle after the tumultuous Iowa caucuses, the candidates have been barnstorming the state to outline their vision for the country, rebuke President Trump, call for party unity and make more overt contrasts with their rivals.

On the eve of the New Hampshire primary, how can it be there is still no winner of last week’s Iowa caucuses? Final results of the Democratic caucus were released late Sunday, after the Iowa Democratic Party made a series of corrections to a tally initially delayed by several days. That’s not the end of the count, however, as Sen. Bernie Sanders and former South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg exercised their right Monday to ask the state party to take another look at its reporting of the results.
Pete Buttigieg appears to be, at the final count, the winner of the 2020 Iowa caucuses. But the story isn’t quite over yet. Sen. Bernie Sanders’s campaign has said it will ask the Iowa Democratic Party to recanvass some of the vote.
Three days of chaos in Iowa allowed the former South Bend, Indiana, mayor to claim victory anew to voters and donors over and over again before the Iowa Democratic Party released its first full accounting of results showing him as the leader of the still-contested caucuses Friday.
