Democrats Eliminate Small-Donor Requirement for Nevada Debate

This change is almost certainly in response to the fact that Michael Bloomberg now appears to be fourth in the national polls, even though he is not soliciting contributions from anyone. As the DNC has recognized, keeping a candidate with that level of voter support off the debate stage, simply because his support is not expressed in one particular form — the number of small donors — would not have made a whole lot of sense. Democratic primary voters will now get a chance to see him on the same stage with others polling at the top and make their own decisions.
