More debates for Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders

Posted By on Sat, Jan 30, 2016 at 1:10 PM

BuzzFeed reports that the two leading candidates for the Democratic nomination for president, Hillary Clinton and Sen. Bernie Sanders, have agreed to hold four more debates: 

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.

Martin O'Malley
, the former governor of Maryland also running, has said he'll debate any time.
