Obama to attend New Hampshire Democratic debate

Sens. Obama and Clinton, pictured at the South Carolina debate last week, both said Tuesday they will attend New Hampshire's first Democratic debate.

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Sen. Barack Obama, D-Illinois, has accepted an invitation to participate in New Hampshire's first Democratic presidential debate on June 3, hosted by CNN, WMUR-TV, and the New Hampshire Union Leader, a spokesperson for his campaign tells CNN.

Obama accepted the invitation shortly after Sen. Hillary Clinton, D-New York, announced she would be attending the June debate. The two were the last of the major Democratic candidates to announce they will attend the debate.

Republicans will take the same stage in Manchester for a GOP presidential debate on June 5.
