Katie's Star-Crossed CBS Debate in North Carolina Officially Cancelled

The North Carolina Democratic Party has just announced that the proposed April 27 presidential debate in North Carolina has been officially cancelled. The star-crossed debate would have been hosted by CBS News–and would have been Katie Couric’s first opportunity to prove herself as a debate moderator on a national stage.

From the web site for the North Carolina Democratic Party:

We regret to inform you that the proposed Democratic Presidential Debate scheduled for April 27 has been cancelled due to time constraints and logistical issues associated with such a large, national event.

You have shown tremendous passion and interest in being a part of history as Democrats are poised this year to elect the first female or African-American President. However, there were also growing concerns about what another debate would do to party unity.
