Hillary Clinton’s top Campaign spokeswoman announced Monday that Hillary Clinton will not debate Bernie Sanders in California.
“As we have said previously, we plan to compete hard in the remaining primary states, particularly California, while turning our attention to the threat a Donald Trump presidency poses,” Jennifer Palmieri, Clinton’s spokeswoman, said. “We believe that Hillary Clinton’s time is best spent campaigning and meeting directly with voters across California and preparing for a general election campaign that will ensure the White House remains in Democratic hands.”
Previously, the two campaigns agreed on a debate schedule that would include a May date in California, but HRC is going back on her word.
Sanders accepted an invitation from Fox News last week.
“I am disappointed but not surprised by Secretary Clinton’s unwillingness to debate before the largest and most important primary in the presidential nominating process,” Sanders said.
“I also would suggest that Secretary Clinton may want to be not quite so presumptuous about thinking that she is a certain winner,” Sanders added. “In the last several weeks, the people of Indiana, West Virginia and Oregon have suggested otherwise.”
Californians deserve to hear the candidates debate about how they will help with the serious issues facing the state, but Hillary Clinton is snubbing the state of California by refusing. Remember in 2008? Hillary Clinton said she would debate “Anytime, anywhere”
Well, Hillary – We call bullshit on that.
