The Big Democratic Debate in June: CNN Sponsored, in Manchester


Word was Howard Dean wanted to limit the Democratic debates to one a month. Looks like June has been claimed by the WMUR-TV, The New Hampshire Union Leader, and CNN:

The Hillary Clinton campaign today accepted an invitation to participate in the June 3 Democratic candidates’ debate in Manchester, NH sponsored by WMUR-TV, The New Hampshire Union Leader, and CNN.

“The WMUR/Union Leader debate is an important part of the New Hampshire Primary tradition, and Senator Clinton is excited to participate,” said Clinton spokesperson Mo Elleithee. “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.

If the lefty bloggers are so upset about Fox, why aren’t they bothered by the New Hampshire Union Leader?
