Barack Obama pledged Thursday to meet Hillary Rodham Clinton in Democratic presidential debates in Texas and Ohio before the March 4 primaries.
But the Illinois senator stopped short of committing to attend an event planned for Feb. 28 in Houston at the George R. Brown Convention Center.
“We’re committing to the concept of doing a debate in Texas before the primary,” said Josh Earnest, a spokesman for the Obama campaign.
Obama also announced he had accepted an invitation to participate in a debate at Cleveland State University on Feb. 26. That debate, the campaign said, will be hosted by NBC News and WKYC, NBC’s Cleveland affiliate.
Clinton, a senator from New York, quickly accepted that offer as well.
Note: What question would you ask the candidates if you had a voice in the debate?
