The Democratic presidential candidates for the past week have been sparring over debate dates in New York ahead of the state's April primary, and neither seems to be budging. 


"I want a debate, and I'm confident that we can work out a time to do that," Clinton said. "['Good Morning America'] offered a debate during 'GMA' on Friday the 15th. I'll be there." 

The Sanders campaign said it has agreed to an NBC News debate on April 10. 

"We hope the Clinton campaign also accepts," the statement said, adding that the senator is also available April 10–13. 

Clinton press secretary Brian Fallon told CNN the campaign offered to debate Sanders on April 4, 14 or 15. The Sanders campaign responded that the “dates and venues she has proposed don't make a whole lot of sense.”
