Four Democratic presidential hopefuls — Tulsi Gabbard, Tom Steyer, Marianne Williamson and Andrew Yang — have accepted invitations to participate in a candidates forum Sunday in Costa Mesa, according to organizers.
The event, presented by the AAPI (Asian American and Pacific Islander) Victory Fund and Asian Americans Rising PAC, starts at 9 a.m. at the Segerstrom Center for the Arts, 600 Town Center Drive.
Tickets start at $25. For more information about the event, visit scfta.org/events/2019/a-democratic-presidential-forum.
The Costa Mesa forum falls days before the next official Democratic presidential debate in Houston. Ten candidates — including Yang — met the polling and donor thresholds necessary to participate Sept. 12.
Gabbard, Steyer and Williamson did not qualify.
