Chris Wallacys debate moderator Mike Huckabee said that if Hillary Clinton were to win the election, he would be open to discussing the possibility of having her debate.
“There is a lot of interest in that right now, and it is possible, I would love to debate,” he said in an interview with ABC News’ Chris Wallace on Sunday.
“The idea is to have a debate, not just to be a candidate,” he added.
“It is the perfect platform for that.”
“There are so many great things about being able to debate.
I would never be in the position of being a candidate and having a debate that is just a coronation.
It is the kind of debate that people want to see, and we could certainly do it,” Wallace said.
“I think if it was an option, I think the candidates would be interested in it.”
Wallace said that it was not his intention to use the debate to make a political statement.
“I would not be here if I were not trying to make it a positive,” Wallacy said.
Wallace, a former U.S. senator from Arkansas, said he is not interested in making any political statements during the debate.
“If you don’t like me, I am not going to do it for you,” he told Wallace.
“We don’t have to debate Hillary Clinton,” he continued.
“We can debate Mike Huckabee.
We can debate anybody.”
Wallaces second debate will be held on June 20 in the same venue as the first debate.
The two-hour debate will take place at the University of South Carolina in Columbia, South Carolina.
