Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) challenged rival Hillary Clinton to a debate in May in “New York City, upstate, wherever” during an appearance on Sunday’s episode of “Meet The Press.”

“I would hope very much that as we go into New York State, Secretary Clinton’s home state, that we will have a debate, New York City, upstate, wherever, on the important issues facing New York and in fact the country,” Sanders told host Chuck Todd.

The last Democratic presidential debate, one of eight thus far, was March 9 in Miami.

Todd asked Sanders if he thought Clinton wouldn’t debate him anymore.

“I do have a little bit of concern about that, but I certainly would like to see a debate in New York State,” Brooklyn-born Sanders said.
