Hillary Rejects Final Debate With Bernie Sanders

CNN reports:

Hillary Clinton will not debate Bernie Sanders in California, her top campaign spokeswoman said Monday. Declining to participate in the Fox News debate — which Sanders had agreed to — is another clear sign that Clinton and her top aides are fully focused on the general election against Donald Trump, the presumptive Republican nominee.

“As we have said previously, we plan to compete hard in the remaining primary states, particularly California, while turning our attention to the threat a Donald Trump presidency poses,” Jennifer Palmieri, Clinton’s spokeswoman, said. “We believe that Hillary Clinton’s time is best spent campaigning and meeting directly with voters across California and preparing for a general election campaign that will ensure the White House remains in Democratic hands.”
