Debate Set for Utah Cancelled

Debate Set for Utah Cancelled

Cancel plans to attend Monday’s Republican Presidential debate in Salt Lake City. The Republican National Committee (RNC) has told debate planners at the Salt Palace that the event is cancelled.

The key reason for the cancellation is that frontrunner Donald trump said Wednesday morning that he would not attend, that he had another event to go to. That led to Ohio Governor John Kasich cancelling, as well.

That would have left Texas Senator Ted Cruz standing alone on stage, which led the RNC to cancel.

Trump had been balking at attending the Utah event for a couple of weeks. But when only three candidates remained standing after Tuesday’s primaries, it was assumed he would change his mind. It didn’t happen that way.

The debate was to have been televised by Fox News at 7 PM (Utah time) on Monday evening.

There are no more debates scheduled at this time.
