PRESS RELEASE
Sanders Accepts Invitation to New York Debate
APRIL 4, 2016
Twitter Facebook Email Link
MILWAUKEE – U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders on Monday accepted an invitation from CNN to debate Hillary Clinton in Brooklyn on April 14 before the New York Democratic Party primary election.

“Sen. Sanders has accepted another invitation to debate Hillary Clinton in New York. We are glad that she finally has agreed,” said Michael Briggs, Sanders’ spokesman. “Sanders all along has pressed for a debate on television in prime time so the greatest number of New Yorkers and Americans may listen to the candidates and decide for themselves who has the best ideas about how to reform our rigged economy and the corrupt campaign finance system. It’s great for the people of New York that there will be a debate in Brooklyn, something that the Clinton campaign has long opposed.

“Fortunately, we were able to move a major New York City rally scheduled for April 14 to the night before. We hope the debate will be worth the inconvenience for thousands of New Yorkers who were planning to attend our rally on Thursday but will have to change their schedules to accommodate Secretary Clinton’s jam-packed, high-dollar, coast-to-coast schedule of fundraisers all over the country.”

CNN invited Sanders and Clinton to the debate ahead of New York’s April 19 Democratic Party primary election.

Sanders previously accepted NBC’s invitation to a prime-time debate next Sunday but that date conflicted with Clinton’s heavy schedule of high-dollar fundraisers, including one on that date in Virginia.

Both the Sanders and Clinton campaigns agreed last January to hold an additional debate in April and another in May.

Sanders was in Wisconsin on Monday appearing at rallies in Milwaukee, Green Bay and Janesville ahead of Tuesday’s primary.

Sounds juvenile to you? Weren't all the HRC supporters demanding he attend, talking about how he could do his rally AND still debate? Come on he does as HRC commands and you call him Juvenal?

Try reading, here let me help you out.

“Fortunately, we were able to move a major New York City rally scheduled for April 14 to the night before.

36. She agreed to do 4 more...

with 1 being in NY. She should be allowed to back out of agreements why?

39. She agreed to 4 more but specifically NOT to one being in NY.

That was an original sticking point when she agreed to 4 more... she would not agree to one of them being in Brooklyn.

Again, this was detailed in the links I provided in the post at http://www.democraticunderground.com/12511647804

how he presents his other issues. It's been awhile since I've seen him answer questions, and kept veering to Wall St. I'm betting he'll be more polished for this.
