Hillary Clinton and Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders have ended their bickering and agreed to debate in New York on April 14.

For the past week Sanders has been lobbing attacks against Clinton accusing her of dodging his requests to debate. In response Hillary’s campaign said that in fact her campaign had offered Sanders three dates for a New York debate, and said “the Sanders campaign needs to stop with the games.”

One of those dates they offered was April 14. The debate will be hosted by CNN and sponsored by NY1 and The New York Daily News.

The Sanders campaign was initially planning to host a rally on April 14.

Sanders’ team wrote in a statement following the announcement of the debate: “We hope the debate will be worth the inconvenience for thousands of New Yorkers who were planning to attend our rally on Thursday but will have to change their schedules to accommodate Secretary Clinton’s jam-packed, high-dollar, coast-to-coast schedule of fundraisers all over the country.”
