Senator Brown tours areas struck by Hurricane Sandy
Final debate off, Senator Brown opts to tour areas struck by Sandy
With the debate only four days away, Senator Scott Brown (R) has nixed the final debate with opponent Elizabeth Warren (D) and is instead touring areas of the Commonwealth struck by Hurricane Sandy. The final debate between the two was scheduled this past Tuesday and was canceled due to the storm.
The senator's communications director Colin Reed, released the following statement about the debate this week:
"It is unfortunate that nature intervened in a way we all agreed made it inappropriate to carry on with the scheduled debate. With only days remaining in the campaign, and with a long-planned bus tour kicking off Thursday through Election Day that will take Scott Brown to every corner of the Commonwealth, our calendar simply cannot accommodate a rescheduling of this fourth debate and the planning and preparation that would go into it. Senator Brown is pleased to have participated in three major televised debates, and regrets that Professor Warren refused two additional earlier debate opportunities that he accepted."
Wednesday, Senator Brown toured Long Beach in Plymouth where the seawall was battered by Sandy.
