Wednesday, June 26’s Lowdown

Above: Wednesday night’s debate crew

Let the games begin! In many ways the 2020 election season kicks off tonight with the first of two debates between a seemingly endless number of Democratic Party presidential candidates. (OK, they’ve whittled the field down to 20 to start out but, honestly, can you name them all?)

Eyeballs in deep blue Humboldt County will undoubtedly be glued to some screen or another come Wednesday’s 6 p.m. debate time. Not into navigating democracy all by your lonesome? Scroll your Lowdown below for details on several local venues hosting public debate screenings. Should you venture out be civil, please. Maybe the candidates will be, too.
