Sen. Scott Brown (R-MA) is pulling out of the final debate in the Massachusetts Senate as a result of Hurricane Sandy, his campaign announced Monday. The debate was scheduled for Tuesday night.
"The Scott Brown campaign today announced that out of concern for the hardship faced by people in the path of Hurricane Sandy that he will not be participating in tomorrow's fourth and final debate," campaign spokesman Colin Reed said in a press release. "It is simply not appropriate to go forward with a political debate when a disaster strikes. The focus for all of us before, during and after the storm needs to be on emergency response and disaster relief, not campaigns and politics."
