If Clinton ducks NY debate, Sanders should challenge Trump [View all]

There is supposed to be debate in April, but Clinton is resisting it being in NY. My guess is she is hoping to have it April 30 when NY/PA are complete and it's irrelevant. After all this was only put on the calendar after Bernie agreed to unscheduled one when Clinton was trailing.

If she doesn't agree he needs to publicly challenge the other New Yorker in the race. Trump already backed out of one debate, but his ego will not allow him to back out of a public challenge especially on home court.
