"Yeah, I do have a little bit of a concern about that, but I would like to see a debate in New York state," Sanders said in an interview on Sunday with Chuck Todd on NBC's "Meet the Press."

The two candidates haven't met in a debate since earlier this month in Miami.

"I would hope very much that as we go into New York state, Secretary Clinton's home state, that we will have a debate in New York City, upstate, wherever, on the important issues," he said.
