The Democratic National Committee will hold its October presidential debate in Ohio.

The fourth Democratic primary debate is expected to be held Oct. 15, officials said.

“We’re excited to partner with the DNC to bring the next sanctioned presidential debate to Ohio,” Ohio Democratic Party Chairman David Pepper said in a press release.

Pepper said selecting Ohio for the upcoming debate is an indication that the Buckeye State is in play for 2020.
