LAS VEGAS (AP) - Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders agree: Enough with the emails.

Sanders passed on the chance to pounce on his political rival's Achilles' heel in the Democratic debate Tuesday night. He says he knows it may not be good politics, but "the American people are sick and tired of hearing about your damn emails."

Clinton and the crowd cheered the moment. She turned to Sanders, shook his hand and said, "Thank you, Bernie."

Clinton says the debate over her use of a private email server as secretary of state is being ginned up by Republicans. She says she made a mistake, but the committee investigating the matter is "basically an arm of the Republican National Committee."

She says she'd rather talk about health care, student debt and issues that affect voters.
