earlier in the day, she held a town hall in brooklyn where she made no mention of wisconsin but did go after her potential future opponent, donald trump. >> the fellow who's from new york, i wish he would get out of one of his towers and actually walk the streets and spend time with the people of this city because peddlining prejudice and paranoia is not the new york way. >> and she now has her sights on the upcoming primary in new york. she and sanders have finally agreed to debate in brooklyn next week. that's a place with close ties to both of them. it's where clinton's campaign headquarters were based and where sanders was born. >> our thanks to liz. exit polls show that the economy is weighing heavily on the voters from both parties. >> nearly 3/4 of democrats said they were worried about the economy. that's compared to nine in ten republicans. and 30% of wisconsin voters across the board named the economy and jobs as the nation's top problem.
