Dems complain weekend debate favors Hillary


The Democratic presidential candidates will have their second debate Saturday night, a fact that some party members aren't happy about.

Some Democrats complain that a debate scheduled for the weekend is at the same time as the Iowa Hawkeyes game. The first Democratic debate, which had five candidates on stage, was held on a Tuesday evening during prime viewer time, but of the remaining debates, one will be the Saturday before Christmas and another the Sunday of Martin Luther King Day weekend.

Critics say that Democratic National Committee has pushed this schedule to benefit front-runner Hillary Clinton.

"All of the candidates have talked about it except for one and its not difficult to see why," former Democratic primary candidate Lawrence Lessig told the Washington Examiner. "I guess I'm the last naive guy in the room. I never would have believed that the game would be played this way, the goal post moving."
