Sanders team pushes Clinton for New York debate


WASHINGTON: Bernie Sanders’ campaign team called on Hillary Clinton to relent and agree to hold a debate between the Democratic presidential hopefuls in New York before the state primary on April 19. Sanders, a self-described democratic socialist, is hanging on in the race for the party ticket and trounced frontrunner Clinton at the weekend in three western states. He will need to replicate that stunning success in the remaining states with the three largest delegate allocations — California, New York and Pennsylvania — if he is to stand any hope of pulling off a shock and beating the former secretary of state to the party nomination. The last debate was in Miami on March 9 and two more are theoretically planned for April and May, with dates and venues undecided.
