Hillary Clinton calls for Democratic debate to be held in Flint, Michigan

edit to add Politico's write-up -It's easier to read

CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa Hillary Clinton's campaign is calling for an additional Democratic debate to be held in Flint, Michigan, the site of an ongoing water contamination crisis that her campaign has focused on in recent weeks.
Weve agreed to an additional debate in N.H. and are currently in discussions to agree to additional debates we think one of them should be in Flint," said campaign chairman John Podesta in a statement on Saturday afternoon, referring to the ongoing negotiations over scheduling new debates. The Sanders and Clinton camps agreed in principle to schedule new ones earlier on Saturday.

"The water crisis in Flint is unconscionable. Its been going on for years, as the people of Flint repeatedly asked for help and were ignored by state government. As Hillary has said, this would not have happened in a wealthy community. It was only when the crisis was finally brought to national attention that real steps were taken to begin to address the immediate issues like access to clean water and health monitoring, and longer term health and infrastructure challenges," said Podesta.
