Clinton and Sanders Hashing Out Whether Next Debate Will Be a New York One

Source: New York Times

The Clinton and Sanders campaigns are in discussions about when to hold a debate in April, but whether it is held before the critical April 19 New York presidential primary remains an open question.

The campaign for Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont sent out a news release on Tuesday proclaiming that Hillary Clinton’s campaign had made “an agreement to debate him in New York before the state’s April 19 primary election.”

That, however, is not exactly what the Clinton campaign has said, at least publicly.

“We have expressed our willingness to debate in April, and the campaigns are discussing different options, including the option of a debate in N.Y. before April 19,” said Brian Fallon, the press secretary for the Clinton campaign, in an email on Wednesday.

Seems like the interwebz' "#Tonedownforwhat" campaign is having an impact. Keep the pressure on: there is no reason why a NY debate should not take place in advance of 4/19.

2. Bernie should bypass the debate

 

And create local 'town hall' opportunities in NYC and smaller cities to capitalize on the other party's intrasingence...

Bernie doesn't need to debate - he only needs to talk to New Yorkers .... Whenever Bernie speaks, he changes minds .... He will succeed in New York ...

I was chatting with Viva today about a DU MeetUp in Portland, perhaps as part of the Potluck for Bernie/Dine with the 99% thingy ...

What say you? ... Great day today! ... Just gorgeous outside ...

6. This shouldn't even be up for discussion

They agreed to March, April and May back in January (February?). March was in Michigan and May is in California.

So whats the problem?

She claims a NY advantage - one would think she would welcome the opportunity to be heard, what with delegate rich MD, PA and NY all voting in April.

Her numbers must show her plummeting the more the later states weigh their options (and the more debates she participates in)?
