This won't be the first time an all-women panel will be moderating a primary debate — according to New York Times, in January 2016, Trish Regan and Sandra Smith moderated one of two Republican presidential debates on Fox Business Network, and Gwen Ifill and Judy Woodruff of PBS moderated a Democratic debate in February 2016.

According to NBC News, the nine candidates who appear to have qualified to date for the fifth debate are Joe Biden, Cory Booker, Pete Buttigieg, Kamala Harris, Bernie Sanders, Tom Steyer, Elizabeth Warren, Andrew Yang, and Amy Klobuchar.
