A planned December debate among Democratic presidential hopefuls is being relocated off the UCLA campus due to a continuing labor dispute, officials announced Wednesday.
A new location for the Dec. 19 Democratic National Committee event has not yet been determined.
“The DNC asked media partners to move the Dec. 19 debate to another venue after renewed and unanticipated objections from organized labor,” according to a statement posted Wednesday on UCLA’s Twitter page. “With regret, we have agreed to step aside rather than become a potential distraction at this important time.”
DNC officials could not be reached for immediate comment. In a statement to HuffPost, DNC senior adviser Mary Beth Cahill said, “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.”
