Bernie Sanders and the Democratic National Committee are back on speaking terms, hours after threatening to sue them and just before the Party's debate in New Hampshire on Saturday night.
Democrats blocked the grassroots candidate from access their voter database after finding that his campaign wrongly downloaded information gathered by Hillary Clinton's team. Sanders said they only found phone numbers, but DNC members said it included other information that was collected over a long period of time.
"The Sanders campaign has now complied with the DNC's request to provide the information that we have requested of them," the DNC said in a statement released after Sanders pulled his suit. "Based on this information, we are restoring the Sanders campaign's access to the voter file, but will continue to investigate to ensure that the data that was inappropriately accessed has been deleted and is no longer in possession of the Sanders campaign."
Sanders will have a chance to give his side of the story Saturday night as and other Democratic underdogs, tussle with Clinton in the final presidential primary of 2015.
The debate airs opposite to an NFL game between the Dallas Cowboys and New York Jets, and in a time slot - 8 p.m. EST - likely to draw far fewer viewers than the Dec. 15 GOP event that drew some 18 million for CNN.
"Think about it. The Republicans stand before the nation, they malign our President's record of achievements, they denigrate women and immigrant families, they double down on trickle-down, and tell their false story," Martin O'Malley said last August, referring to the uneven amount of debates scheduled between Democrats and Republicans. "And we respond with crickets, tumbleweeds and a cynical move to delay and limit our own party debates."
Online coverage begins at 6 p.m. EST with a "first debate" featuring Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham, Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum, and New York Gov. George Pataki.
