(KGTV) — As the outcome of the Iowa Caucus lingers among the Democratic field of presidential contenders, seven candidates are set to meet on the debate stage Friday night.

Friday's debate will see candidates discuss issues just four days before the New Hampshire primary, kicking off a busy schedule of more debates before the Nevada Caucus and South Carolina Primary.

Former Vice President Joe Biden, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg, Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, Entrepreneur Tom Steyer, Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren, and entrepreneur Andrew Yang will participate in Friday's debate.

Following Iowa's caucus, Buttigieg and Sanders are locked in as the top two front runners of the Democratic field, with Warren and Biden behind.

Despite the collapse in reporting votes, which officials have blamed on an app used to record the voting data, the top two candidates enter Friday's debate with a wave of momentum on the stage.

Polls have suggested that Sanders is now the favorite to lead New Hampshire's Primary.

ABC News chief anchor George Stephanopoulos, “World News Tonight” anchor David Muir, and ABC News Live anchor Linsey Davis will moderate the debate, alongside WMUR-TV political director Adam Sexton and WMUR-TV News anchor Monica Hernandez.
