With the crucial New York State primary looming, scheduled for April 19, a date should soon be set for a date between
the remaining Democratic candidates: Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders.
CNN and NY1 are hoping to host such a debate, and have been in touch with the Democratic National Committee about scheduling a date. So far no agreed upon date has been forthcoming.
Brian Fallon, the press secretary for the Clinton campaign, tweeted last Saturday a possible date, April 14, but not without adding a little dig at Sanders.
“It seems like Sanders camp is more interested in having fake excuses to attack Hillary Clinton than actually debating in NY,” tweeted Fallon.
It didn’t take long for the Sander’s camp to retort in an equally annoying way, saying that the Clinton’s proposed date for the debate in advance of the New York primary, “don’t make a whole lot of sense.”
There are reports that Jeff Weaver, manager of the Sander’s campaign, wrote to Robby Mook, manager of the Clinton campaign, requesting a debate sometime before the primary of April 19. Fallon, the press secretary for Clinton, said that the Sander’s people “balked” when the Clinton team agreed to a debate on the TV program “Good Morning America.”
