Bernie Sanders Campaign Statement on New York Debate

Press Release

Sanders Campaign Statement on New York Debate
April 2, 2016

EAU CLAIRE, Wis. – Bernie Sanders’ spokesman Michael Briggs issued the following statement Saturday on a debate in New York with Hillary Clinton:

“We are very pleased that Secretary Clinton finally has accepted our request for a debate about the needs of New York and America. Unfortunately, the dates and venues she has proposed don’t make a whole lot of sense. The idea that they want a debate in New York on a night of the NCAA finals – with Syracuse in the tournament no less – is ludicrous. We have proposed other dates which they have rejected. We hope we can reach agreement in the near future. The people of New York and America deserve to see and hear a debate on the important issues facing the state and country.”


Bernie leads Clinton among Black voters in Wisconsin by 11%!

Sanders Is Close to Overtaking Clinton Among Nonwhite Voters
By Alexandra Jacobo -

.... new poll results show the Vermont senator gaining on the former first lady and, in some states, even overtaking her.[among minority voters] And it’s happening fast.

At the end of February, Hillary Clinton led Sanders among African American voters by a massive 52 points. Just one month later, her lead shrunk to only nine points. In Wisconsin, a state many claim is a must-win for Sanders, Clinton actually trails Sanders by 11 points among African-American voters.

This is bad news for Hillary Clinton. Previously, Clinton was getting by on her minority support. But as time has gone on, Clinton has won by less and less of a margin in the Southern states, such as Florida and North Carolina. According to this trend, Clinton’s dwindling minority support may mean huge wins for Sanders in the Midwest and the North.

For example, in New York, Clinton was leading Sanders by 48 points just two weeks ago. Now, her lead is only 12 points, according to the latest Quinnipiac Poll. That same poll shows Sanders has 300 percent more support among African-American voters in New York than he had in Mississippi.
