Sanders Campaign Statement on New York Debate

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.”
