"You know, last night they were comparing Bernie to Rick Lazio in the debate that he had with her in the Senate," Mr. Devine said. "I remember that — Lazio walked across the stage and practically mugged her, OK? So no, it was nothing like that."
"We are continuing to negotiate with them not just about the debate Thursday night, but about the other debates that we have said need to be agreed to in order to put the whole package of debates together," Mr. Devine said. "They have not agreed to at least one aspect of it, which is we've asked for a debate in New York."
