Dates for the Obama/Clinton debates in April!

Alright, we’ve got some dates for the upcoming debates in April between Clinton and Obama. The first will be aired on ABC from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and the second will be a few days later on CBS from North Carolina.

Here’s how they break down:

April 16, 2008 – Obama/Clinton debate on ABC from Philadelphia, PA
April 19, 2008 – Obama/Clinton debate on CBS from North Carolina

Here are the details from Washington Wire:

With more voting, comes more debates. Democratic presidential hopefuls Sens. Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama announced today that they have accepted invitations to two debates ahead of the next round of primaries.

Clinton sent a statement at 4:48 p.m. EDT announcing she had accepted an invitation from ABC to debate Obama in Philadelphia on April 16. The Obama campaign followed with a statement at 5:02 saying it had accepted that offer and another from CBS for a debate in North Carolina three days later on April 19. The Clinton campaign did not immediately return a call regarding its decision on the CBS debate.

Pennsylvania, with 158 delegates, and North Carolina, with 115 delegates, are the two biggest contests remaining. There are no more primaries scheduled before Pennsylvania votes on April 22. North Carolina follows that two weeks later with a primary on May 6.

We’ll have more details such as the exact times as soon as they become available. I’ll also post information on tickets if I find it. Leave comments if you have more information.
