Obama, Clinton To Participate In NH Debates

Senators Clinton and Obama has agreed to participate in the June 3rd Democratic debate at Saint Anselm College. Here are the statements that the two camps released:

The Obama camp released a statement through their NH Director that read,
"We had hoped that the DNC and the debate’s sponsors would agree to make this debate one of the DNC’s six sanctioned debates. However, Senator Obama believes talking about how we can change our politics with the other candidates in the home of the nation’s first primary is an opportunity too important to miss.”

Meanwhile, Clinton spokesperson Mo Elleithee said, "The WMUR/Union Leader debate is an important part of the New Hampshire Primary tradition, and Senator Clinton is excited to participate. She looks forward to this opportunity to continue her conversation with Granite Staters and demonstrate why she is the candidate most ready to lead and deliver the change we need."
