The presidential hopefuls are gearing up for tomorrow’s primary election in Wisconsin, with 42 delegates for the GOP and 96 for Democrats.
While this election season’s GOP debates are a thing of the past, the Democrats might have more to come. But Sen. Bernie Sanders’s campaign has accused Hillary Clinton of trying to avoid future debates. From Fox News:
“I want it,” Clinton told NBC’s “Meet the Press,” in response to suggestions that she is avoiding a debate with Sanders in her adopted home state of New York ahead of its April 19 primary.
Sanders, a Brooklynite who has won five of the last six primaries or caucuses, has challenged Clinton to a debate in delegate-rich New York.
The Clinton campaign has offered a few dates — including a weekday morning and at the same time as Monday night’s NCAA men’s basketball champions — that the Sanders campaign and others see as less than optimal for viewership.
Still, Clinton said she was “confident” about the debate happening.
Clinton said she still has “work to do” in beating her challenger. According to the polls, she’s running behind Sen. Sanders in Wisconsin (at the time of publication).
The story is the same for Donald Trump on the other side of the aisle. Sen. Ted Cruz is leading (at the time of publication) in Wisconsin polls. Trump recently appeared on Fox, where he expressed opposition to raising the minimum wage and said he’d simplify the tax code if elected. The GOP frontrunner also said it’s time for Gov. John Kasich to drop out of the race.
“All he’s doing is just, he goes from place to place, and loses, and he keeps running. Well, why doesn’t Marco Rubio do that? Why doesn’t Jeb Bush do that? Why didn’t all of them do that? Now if he wants to go and have his name put in nomination in the convention, he can do that. He doesn’t have to run and take my votes.”
Do you agree with Trump?
