Trump vs. Sanders debate? The two are tossing idea around

Emborg, who was depositing his ballot at a drop box in Everett, said if Trump is the GOP nominee, he will vote for a third-party candidate.

Could a debate between presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump and Democratic candidate Bernie Sanders be in the works?

Sanders, a USA senator from Vermont, is running behind Clinton in the race for the Democratic presidential nomination, while Trump on Thursday secured the delegates needed to clinch the Republican nomination.

Trump won at least 24 delegates in Washington state, with 20 still left to be allocated. The billionaire businessman has 1,196 delegates.

The win itself will be a big morale and possible fundraising boost for the victor, but it won't make a significant difference in terms of their delegate take-home numbers.

She went on to say the consensus within the campaign is that Clinton would be better served by using the remaining time to campaign and meet the voters.

A day after Sanders announced a new ad buy of less than $2 million in the state, Clinton announced her own television campaign.

The two candidates expressed an interest in squaring off in a one-on-one encounter that would leave Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton on the sidelines.

Four more Washington delegates are still to be decided, potentially boosting the real estate tycoon's total even higher.

About 30 percent of Republicans and Republican-leaning voters under 30 would vote for Sanders over Trump, with only 18 percent voting for Clinton.

Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders won Washington's caucuses in March, getting 74 delegates. "I look forward to debating Donald Trump in California before the June 7 primary". Ben Carson was also on the ballot because he never submitted the paperwork to have his name removed.

In California, Clinton leads Trump 49%-39% among likely voters in a general election matchup, with 11% saying they are undecided, according to the poll.

The support is split by gender as well, with 46 percent of men favoring Sanders over Clinton and 49 percent of women favoring Clinton over Sanders. That makes Tuesday's primary results a popularity contest with no impact on the Democratic nomination.

Of the almost 1.2 million votes counted as of Tuesday night, more than 661,000 voters cast their vote in the statewide Democratic contest compared to the almost 487,000 Republican ballots cast.
