RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - There is an agreement between Hillary Rodham Clinton and Barack Obama for a Democratic debate in North Carolina. Now, the debate is over when to have it.

Obama had previously agreed to debate his rival on April 19th in North Carolina. But today, the Clinton campaign said she has agreed to a debate April 27th, sponsored by CBS.

The two candidates have already agreed to debate in Philadelphia on April 16th, a few days before the Pennsylvania primary on April 22nd.

The two rivals have debated 20 times during the presidential campaign. Their last meetings were in Texas and Ohio in February ahead of those states' primaries on March 4th.
