Democratic presidential frontrunner Hillary Clinton has reportedly declined to participate in the Fox News debate that her opponent Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) has agreed to.
"We have declined Fox News' invitation to participate in a debate in California. As we have said previously, we plan to compete hard in the remaining primary states, particularly California, while turning our attention to the threat a Donald Trump presidency poses," Clinton's spokeswoman, Jennifer Palmieri said in a statement to Bloomberg.
"We believe that Hillary Clinton's time is best spent campaigning and meeting directly with voters across California and preparing for a general election campaign that will ensure the White House remains in Democratic hands," Palmieri said in the statement.
Of course there are those who are going to argue that Hillary agreed to one more debate, but that was before she attained such an insurmountable lead against Sanders.
After all Hillary has won every debate they have had so far, and when you are in the ring and your opponent is down for the count it is unseemly to keep kicking on them.
And if the Sanders' folks thing that California is their firewall against a Clinton nomination, they might want to do the math again.
As for allegations that Clinton is too afraid to debate Sanders I direct you to Google the eleven hours of testimony during the Benghazi witch hunt.
Watch carefully and see if you can identify the moment where she was frightened.
Spoiler alert, it doesn't exist.
