Dem Debates Off



Ever since the Democratic debates were "postponed" on Tuesday due to Tropical Storm Ernesto, NBC affiliate WPTV has been working to reschedule them for Friday night.

Now they're cancelled.

At 2 p.m. Wednesday, the Davis campaign confirmed they would do it and NBC called the Smith campaign to see if they could get them to agree. At 4 p.m. the Smith campaign said they couldn't fit the debates into their schedule, according to Tom Kastanotis of WPTV. All the stations were going to take it live on Friday night, except the Miami affiliate WTBJ, which was going to tape it and play it over the weekend.
