MSNBC’s Chuck Todd just announced that he and Rachel Maddow will moderate a Democratic debate sponsored by the Manchester Union Leader after the February 1 Iowa Caucus on February 4 in advance of the February 9 New Hampshire primary. New Hampshire has always had a debate before their primary going back to 1984. This debate has not been sanctioned by the Democratic Party. Rachel Maddow just announced that Hillary Clinton and Martin O’Malley have said they would debate but Bernie Sanders said he would only debate if the Democratic Party sanctioned the debate because the DNC said that anyone participating in a non-sanctioned debate would be prohibited from future sanctioned debates. WHEW !
I call on the Democratic Party NOW to sanction this and MORE PRIME TIME Democratic debates during the primary season for the good of our country and democracy.
