Sanders is holding a rally in the South Bronx today, after Hillary held one in Harlem’s Apollo theater yesterday. Sanders also invited Clinton to hold a debate with him in the Big Apple, but Hillary Clinton’s campaign manager told CNN that while a debate is on the table, it really depends on Sanders’s “tone.” “Let’s see if he goes back to the kind of tone he said he was going to set early on. If he does that, then we’ll talk about debates.”
