On the stump in Jacksonville, North Carolina, Clinton renews criticism of Obama for not agreeing to debates in the two upcoming states.
“The issues in Pennsylvania are not the same as the issues in North Carolina.”
On canceled North Carolina debate: “So again I offer that I’ll go anywhere at any time.”
Obama spokesman Hari Sevugan responds: “While Senator Clinton is focused on debating debates – except, of course, for the one in North Carolina that Senator Obama accepted and she didn’t or the previous 20-plus debates they’ve already had – Senator Obama is focused on finding real solutions for our families like making energy more affordable and securing our energy independence.”
Plus: Another Obama spokesman says the Illinois Senator has not closed the door on an Indiana debate, but it’s not his No. 1 priority.
HALPERIN’S TAKE: The North Carolina primary.
