St. Louis Presidential Debate Called Off
St. Louis – There will be no debate among Democratic presidential candidates in Missouri after all.
The Missouri Democratic Party today called off Monday night's planned debate, which would have been held at the University of Missouri--St. Louis on the eve of Tuesday's presidential primaries.
Missouri Democratic Party chairwoman May Scheve says organizers could not get commitments from senators John Kerry and John Edwards.
She cited the demands of travel coupled with short preparation time and forecasts calling for a possible winter storm.
Missouri is one of seven states holding primaries Tuesday.
