Sanders Writes to DNC Chair on Debates

NEW YORK, – U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders, a candidate for the Democratic presidential nomination, on Monday urged Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, the Democratic National Committee chair, to consider a series of debates among Democratic candidates beginning this summer.

Sanders also suggested that Democratic candidates would benefit by engaging in early debates with Republican candidates.

Sanders also called for a “50-state strategy” in which debates would be held in states that, at this time, are not electing Democratic candidates.
