When they faced off last month, Sanders was restrained in challenging Clinton and got a grateful handshake from her when he said voters were “sick and tired” of the controversy over her use of private email as secretary of state. “He’s not necessarily looking for a fight, but he does have some differences with her on issues and he intends to talk about those,” said Tad Devine, a senior adviser to Sanders.
