Here we go: After Bernie Sanders agreed to a Thursday night debate in New Hampshire while details were being worked out on the other debates he’d called for, Sanders, Clinton, and the Democratic National Committee have come to an agreement on a further three debates, Greg Sargent reports:
The four debates will be sanctioned by the Democratic National Committee, a spokesman for the DNC, Luis Miranda, confirms to me. “They will all be sanctioned,” Miranda says.
The first of these will be tomorrow night on MSNBC. The second will be in Flint, Michigan (as Hillary Clinton has requested) in March; the third will be in Pennsylvania in April, and the fourth will be in California in May, a source close to the talks confirms.
The New York debate Sanders had been pushing for appears to have been replaced with the Pennsylvania debate mentioned.
These will be head-to-head Clinton/Sanders events, so the two candidates should have plenty of time to get in depth on policy (if the moderators will allow it) and air their differences.
