WASHINGTON (AP) - Hillary Rodham Clinton has yet to say whether she'll debate Barack Obama next month in North Carolina.

Both candidates plan to participate in an ABC News debate on April 16th in Philadelphia. Obama also has agreed to a CBS-hosted debate April 19th in North Carolina. The Pennsylvania primary is scheduled for three days later, while North Carolina holds its primary two weeks after that.

A Clinton spokesman say the campaign is still working through the details. Howard Wolfson says he's "quite confident" there will be more debates.

Clinton ran a statewide television ad in Wisconsin before its February primary, challenging Obama to debate there, as she struggled to regain momentum after a string of Obama victories.

The two have debated 20 times during this campaign.
