Sanders, Clinton Campaigns Agree To More Debates

MANCHESTER, Iowa — The campaigns of the two major candidates for the Democratic nomination have agreed to hold four more debates, should they be sanctioned, sources from both the Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders campaigns tell BuzzFeed News.

The details — where and when — remain unresolved, and the Democratic National Committee has not yet agreed to the arrangement, the Clinton and Sanders sources said.

“Once dates and cities are locked down, we are looking forward to four additional debates,” a person close to the Sanders campaign told BuzzFeed News. A source close to the Clinton campaign confirmed that account, saying that aides in Brooklyn have agreed to what the Sanders campaign asked for earlier this week.

Both sides, still in separate negotiations with DNC officials, have agreed to attend the “unsanctioned” Feb. 4 debate in New Hampshire hosted by the Union Leader and MSNBC, should that event go forward, in addition to three others, to be held at later dates.

8. She may be ticked that Hillary put her in this spot

Basically, Hillary said "screw what DWS did for us, I'm in trouble and I need more debates!" instead of going to DWS behind the scenes and trying to work something out to save face.

7. More debates, great but not opposite football games!

Prime time, week nights. Good.
Opposite mega events, not so good.

Go Bernie!

9. Can we at least try to beat the republicans in rating once?

Is it too much to ask that we, as the Democratic Party, try to gain the most possible exposure?

Can we please act like the party of the overwhelming majority of Americans? Even if we have to fake it, can we act like we are proud of who we are.

Just fucking once.

10. If nothing else, this emphasizes the complete failure that Debbie Wasserman Schultz has been.

 

Seriously, the candidates shouldn't need to beg the chair of the DNC for more debates. I really wish the President had chosen a DNC chair who DOESN'T campaign for Republicans. Debbie Wasserman Schultz: You are thoroughly corrupt, and you need to go away now.
