DNC Sanctions 4 More Debates – Democratic Race For White House Heats Up Ahead Of Thursday's New Hampshire Debate
Voters in New Hampshire will have to deal with the onslaught of about a dozen presidential candidates and hundreds (if not thousands) of news media professionals traipsing through the Granite State for the next week. The New Hampshire primary is November 9, but the DNC has now officially sanctioned Thursday night's Democratic debate, after both candidates got some if not most of their demands met.
Clinton and Sanders will meet one-on-one Thursday. In March they will debate in Flint, Michigan. In April, in Pennsylvania, and in May in California. Instead of the six originally planned debates, there will now be ten.
Meanwhile, Bernie Sanders launched a series of tweets Wednesday afternoon apparently aimed for Hillary Clinton. In them, the Vermont Senator seems to say that he's a "real progressive" and the former Secretary of State is a progressive only on "some days."
Take a look:
Most progressives that I know don't raise millions of dollars from Wall Street.— Bernie Sanders (@BernieSanders) February 3, 2016
Most progressives that I know were opposed to the Keystone pipeline from day one. Honestly, it wasn’t that complicated.— Bernie Sanders (@BernieSanders) February 3, 2016
Most progressives I know were against the war in Iraq. One of the worst foreign policy blunders in the history of the United States.— Bernie Sanders (@BernieSanders) February 3, 2016
Clinton responded on the campaign trail and then her campaign did via Twitter:
4) Hillary's not running to make a point—she's running to make a difference. She'll keep doing that. Please feel free to keep tweeting.— Hillary Clinton (@HillaryClinton) February 3, 2016
