The Democratic National Committee (DNC) is looking for an alternative location for the sixth 2020 presidential primary debate after concerns about using a venue at the University of California, Los Angeles were raised by local labor officials.
HuffPost first reported Wednesday that DNC officials had instructed the debate’s media partners, “PBS Newshour” and Politico, to find an alternative location for the event scheduled for December.
“In response to concerns raised by the local organized labor community in Los Angeles, we have asked our media partners to seek an alternative site for the December debate,” DNC senior adviser Mary Beth Cahill wrote in an email to the campaigns obtained by The Hill.
The decision reportedly comes a day after a chapter of the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees (AFSCME) sent a letter to six of the leading Democratic candidates urging them to respect a boycott on speakers at the university called by the union.
