It is time for Sanders Campaign to call out Hillary's coordination with Brock's SuperPAC

She's claiming a high road that she is not on.

Flint gets Democratic presidential debate on March 6 (DNC sanctions 3 new debates, one in CA)

Democratic presidential contenders Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders will square off in a debate in Flint on March 6, two days before Michigan Democrats head to the polls.

The Democratic National Committee is sanctioning the televised debate in Flint
, which Clinton wanted in her quest to continue shining a national spotlight on the city’s lead-contaminated water crisis.

The Sanders campaign originally proposed a March 3 debate at an unspecified location in Michigan.

Michigan’s presidential primary is March 8.

The Flint debate is on a Sunday and is one of three new debates approved by the DNC. The exact time and location in Flint wasn’t included in the announcement.

“The first of these new debates is confirmed to take place in Flint, Michigan on March 6th, with the remaining two taking place in April and May with times and locations to be determined,” DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz said in a Wednesday statement. “We will continue to work closely with both campaigns as we finalize the remaining details.”

Sanders said Wednesday on CNN that he and Clinton agreed to additional debates in Michigan and California.

“We didn’t get all the commitments that I wanted,” Sanders said on CNN. “We got California, we got Michigan — and that’s good. I wanted a debate in New York City ... but Secretary Clinton has not agreed to do that.”

Sanders had wanted an April debate in Brooklyn, New York, where he was born and Clinton’s campaign headquarters is located.

After Clinton narrowly edged Sanders in Monday’s Iowa caucuses, the former secretary of state is in a pitched battle with the Vermont U.S. senator in next Tuesday’s New Hampshire primary.

Clinton and Sanders will appear at a televised town hall meeting at 9 p.m. Wednesday in Manchester, New Hampshire, sponsored by CNN.

Then the candidates will square off again Thursday night in a DNC-sanctioned debate at the University of New Hampshire in Durham.

Other DNC-run debates are scheduled for Feb. 11 in Milwaukee and March 9 in Miami.

DNC has sanctioned 3 additional debates one in Flint, MI on March 3. The other two will take place in April and May, one of which will be in California. Bernie still pushing for the last of the three to be in NY.

Unsaid is whether the NH debate is DNC sanctioned, I assume it is? Making four total debates added.

Settle in, everyone, this race is going into May at least.

Sanders gets national polling bump from Iowa; Hillary flat

Sens. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) and Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) have gained support since the Iowa caucuses, according to a new national Morning Consult poll released Wednesday.

Support for Sanders increased 4 points to 35 percent in a Morning Consult poll taken Feb. 2-3. In the same poll taken from Jan. 29 to Feb 1, Sanders had garnered 31 percent support.

The Vermont senator finished in a virtual tie with rival Hillary Clinton in Monday’s Iowa caucuses, giving his campaign a jolt of momentum heading into New Hampshire. Clinton was declared the winner in Iowa by the slimmest of margins.

Clinton's support was unchanged in the new poll, staying at 51 percent.

Still a steep hill, but moving the right direction.

Has Thursday's debate been sanctioned by the DNC? Have the campaigns agreed on other debates?

I haven't seen any reports regarding either of these points. Only that Bernie and HIllary will be debating on Thursday.

Has the DNC weighed in? And how about the other four debates, including NY? Has HIllary agreed to those?

Where did FOX News get these Iowa voter results???

I posted a link to this yesterday.

Where did FOX News get these results? They have vote numbers per candidate by county.

Before the Iowa Caucuses, Elizabeth Warren said, "No endorsements now. . . it's not today."

Elizabeth Warren is the only female Democratic U.S. senator who still has not endorsed a candidate in the presidential primary. And she’s going to keep it that way.

“No endorsements now,” Warren said on Monday night after an open house in Springfield, according to MassLive. When pressed on when it would come, she said, “it’s not today.”

“I think that what the Democrats are doing is terrific. We’re out talking about the issues,” Warren said. “I look at the Republican debates, and the difference between what they’re doing and what the Democrats are doing, that really shows who’s on whose side.”

The comments came before the Iowa caucus, in which Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton finished in a virtual tie.

It's not today (yesterday). But, it is coming:

The senator, however, hinted that her endorsement could come soon, saying "we'll see," when asked if she'll announce her support following the Iowa Caucuses.

A final tally of actual votes (if no errors in reports or math) Hillary (+274): H-69,726; B-69,452

274 more people voted for Hillary Clinton than Bernie Sanders, out of a total of 171,109 voting.

Those totals arrived at by adding the numbers found here: http://www.foxnews.com/politics/elections/2016/primary-caucus-results/iowa

It doesn't get much tighter than that. Hillary did eke out a win, but it is a far, far cry from the 30 points she was up just a couple months ago.On to New Hampshire.

FYI: New York Times still hasn't called it. Polk County at 99% reporting; H-49.9, B-49.6, M-.6
