On Tuesday, the six top candidates for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination with gather for a debate in Des Moines, Iowa. Every single one is white.

On stage will be former Vice President Joe Biden of Delaware, former South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg, Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-MN), Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT), California billionaire Tom Steyer and Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren, the top contenders left in a field that began with 24 candidates. Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez blamed Democratic voters for the lack of diversity in the upcoming debate.

“If you want to make sure that a candidate of color makes the debate stage, when a pollster calls you, make sure you make that preference felt,” Perez said on MSNBC. “Because that is how you move the polling needle and, again, the voters are the ones who are making these decisions.”

Entrepreneur Andrew Yang, the only candidate of color to make the Democratic debate in December, failed to make the cut for Tuesday’s debate, drawing ire from his campaign.

“If the DNC had only done their due diligence and commissioned polls in the early states, Andrew Yang would certainly be on the debate stage next week,” Yang campaign chief Nick Ryan said Saturday in a statement. “We are not going to allow the DNC to dictate who they wish to see as the nominee and deny the will of the people.”
