DNC Chair Statement on New York Democratic Debate

WASHINGTON –  DNC Chair Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz issued the following statement:

“With our campaigns in agreement, the Democratic National Committee has sanctioned a primetime debate for the evening of Thursday April 14th to be hosted by CNN and NY1 in New York. The debate meets the framework previously agreed to by both campaigns on timing, and allows our network partners enough time to build a venue and audience that will best showcase our candidates and their vision to keep America moving forward. Every time our candidates take the stage they show the temperament and judgment the American people expect in a President and Commander in Chief. While the Republican primary has sunk deeper and deeper into chaos, the Democratic primary continues to show democracy at its best and we look forward to seeing our candidates debate next week.”
