UCLA will no longer host upcoming Democratic debate due to an ongoing labor dispute

The Democratic National Committee on Wednesday announced that the University of California, Los Angeles, would no longer host the December presidential primary debate, citing a campus controversy related to an ongoing labor fight.

The news of the venue change from the party organization comes amid a boycott of speaking engagements at the University of California demanded by AFSCME Local 3299, the school’s largest employee union, which has been locked in a dispute with the the 10-campus system for nearly three years.

UCLA said in a statement that it did not wish to become a "distraction" for the upcoming debate. "With regret, we have agreed to step aside as the site of the debate rather than become a potential distraction during this vitally important time in our country’s history," the statement read.

POLITICO is partnering with PBS NewsHour to sponsor the December debate, which will be the sixth televised forum of the nominating contest.

1. LOL the local native people on campus told Warren to take a long hike off of a short pier.

She is not welcome there. Now the dem party is trying to hide that fact.
