Clinton/Obama Agree To More Debates Before Pennsylvania – Updated

Joy, we will all be privy to Democratic debate number 21 and 22 since both candidates are agreeing to two more debates before the Pennsylvania primary on Tuesday, April 22nd. No dates have been set yet but they will happen on ABC and CBS. I believe we’re talking about national network broadcasts, not just relegate to cable news.

Here’s the details from Political Radar:

ABC News’ Ed O’Keefe Reports: The dueling Democrats contending for the party’s crown will debate again.

Taking the stage for the 21st and possibly 22nd time, Sens. Hillary Clinton, D-N.Y., and Barack Obama, D-Ill., could debate at least twice more before the critical Pennsylvania primary on Tuesday, April 22.

Both candidates have accepted an ABC News debate in Philadelphia and Obama has accepted a similar invitation from CBS News to debate at a location to be determined in North Carolina.

The CBS News debate would be their first debate of the 2008 campaign season.

So far there are no dates for either debate, I’ll update our Full 2008 Debate Schedule when we get more details.

I’ll also post again when there are confirmed dates and put the schedule prominently on the site so you won’t miss them.


We have some dates now:

April 16, 2008Obama/Clinton debate on ABC from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
April TBD, 2008 – Obama/Clinton debate on CBS from North Carolina

We’ll have more coverage as the dates near.
