In an exclusive interview, presidential candidate Hillary Clinton says she's ready to debate her top rival Bernie Sanders in New York before the state's April 19 primary.

"I will be there,'' Clinton said, of a possible showdown with Sanders on TWC News NY1 that the station is attempting to sponsor.

Speaking to political reporter Josh Robin, Clinton had tough words for Sanders about his record in the Senate regarding gun control.

"Contrasts are fair game. You know I really oppose his record on gun control, his refusal to take on the NRA. I think that’s wrong for New York, wrong for America."

Clinton also took on the entire Republican field when she was asked about Donald Trump's reversal over whether women should be prosecuted for getting illegal abortions.

"They all went to make abortion illegal and if you make something illegal, you have to have consequences and that leads to punishment which is what Trump was advocating,'' Clinton said.

The former New York senator also praised Mayor de Blasio and Gov. Cuomo, singling out the mayor's universal pre-kindergarten program.
