PPD has confirmed Hillary Clinton declined to participate in the Fox News debate with Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, which was to be scheduled just ahead of the California Democratic primary on June 6. While Mrs. Clinton hasn’t officially released a statement, she will tell the network that it would not be a wise use of the candidate’s time and money, which will be used in a pivot toward presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump.

“We are turning our attention to the threat Donald Trump poses,” the statement will read.

Fox News invited the former secretary of state to the debate last Tuesday, an invitation Sen. Sanders quickly accepted. However, as polls quickly tighten and Mrs. Clinton trails Mr. Trump, pressure on Sen. Sanders to drop out has mounted.
