(Associated Press) — The Democratic presidential campaigns of Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders have reached an agreement in principle to hold another presidential debate next week in New Hampshire and three more later this spring.

Both campaigns say a final deal has not yet been reached and the Democratic National Committee has not signed off on the agreement.

But the New Hampshire debate next Thursday would give Clinton and Sanders a high-profile encounter before the nation’s first presidential primary.

The agreement was first reported by BuzzFeed.

Clinton and Sanders are in a tight race before Monday’s Iowa caucuses and Clinton trails the Vermont senator in New Hampshire.

Clinton has urged the DNC to add the televised forums while Sanders has been willing to appear at the proposed debate next week in exchange for three more debates later this spring.
