Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar will take part in the first of two Democratic presidential debates to be broadcast on NBC later this month.

Klobuchar will appear on Wednesday, June 26, joining a lineup that includes her fellow Sens. Elizabeth Warren and Cory Booker, and former Rep. Beto O'Rourke.

The lineups were determined following a random draw, the DNC has said.

Here's the full lineup:

  • Sen. Cory Booker
  • Sen. Elizabeth Warren
  • Rep. Beto O’Rourke
  • Sen. Amy Klobuchar
  • Rep. John Delaney
  • Rep. Tulsi Gabbard
  • Sec. Julian Castro
  • Rep. Tim Ryan
  • Mayor Bill de Blasio
  • Gov. Jay Inslee

The debate will provide an opportunity for Klobuchar to exhibit her presidential credentials in a huge field vying for the nomination to face President Donald Trump in 2020.

Speaking of the president, Sen. Klobuchar has said this week that she supports starting the process of impeachment, following comments made by President Trump that stated he would take information from a foreign power if they offered dirt on a domestic opponent.

Speaking to CNN, Klobuchar said such a thing would be illegal, and accused Trump of sending out signals akin to 2016, when he urged Russia to investigate Hillary Clinton's emails.

The other Democratic debate, on June 27, will feature the likes of Sens. Bernie Sanders and Kamala Harris, Joe Biden and Mayor Pete Buttigieg.
