Clinton to attend Democratic debate in New Hampshire
WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Sen. Hillary Clinton, D-New York, will attend New Hampshire's first 2008 Democratic presidential debate on June 3, an event that is being sponsored by CNN, WMUR-TV, and the New Hampshire Union Leader, her campaign announced Tuesday.
Clinton speaks to supporters during a rally at the California Democratic Convention in San Diego, California on Saturday.
"She looks forward to this opportunity to continue her conversation with Granite Staters and demonstrate why she is the candidate most ready to lead and deliver the change we need," Clinton spokesperson Mo Elleithee said in the statement.
Every major Democratic presidential hopeful has now accepted an invitation to participate in the debate except Sen. Barack Obama, D-Illinois. Republicans will take the same stage in Manchester for a GOP presidential debate on June 5.
