ATLANTA (AP) There's no 12th Democratic presidential debate on the horizon now that the nominating process is in a holding pattern due to the coronarvirus pandemic.

One of the Democratic National Committee's lead debate organizers says the party hasn't set a date or secured a television broadcasting partner for what would be the final encounter of the dozen that DNC Chairman Tom Perez promised at the campaign's outset.

There's no evidence that either Joe Biden, the prospective nominee, or Bernie Sanders, Biden's last remaining rival, is clamoring for a debate.

And there's doubt among the candidates' advisers that one will occur.
