Hillary Clinton, reeling after eight straight losses to Barack Obama, is airing a new ad criticizing her rival for not agreeing to a debate in Wisconsin, which votes next Tuesday.
It is the first negative ad that Clinton has aired against Obama in weeks.
"Both Democratic candidates have been invited to a televised Wisconsin debate," the narrator says. "Hillary Clinton has said yes. Barack Obama hasn't. Maybe he'd prefer to give speeches than have to answer questions. Like why Hillary Clinton has the only health care plan that covers every American, and the only economic plan that freezes foreclosures.
"Wisconsin deserves to hear both candidates debate the issues that matter," the announcer concludes. "And that's...not debatable."
The two Democrats have agreed to two debates, Feb. 21 in Texas and Feb. 26 in Ohio. Both those states vote on March 4.
