Brown Won't Reschedule Debate with Warren

Voters have heard enough canned talking points repeated ad nauseum


US Senator Scott Brown, after insisting for days that he was eager for a final face-off with Elizabeth Warren, said on Tuesday that he did not believe another debate was necessary and that he would not be able to reschedule the one that was canceled because of the storm.

Brown's pronouncement represented a striking shift from his comments on Friday, when he said there was no way that Hurricane Sandy would prevent him from taking on Warren on Tuesday as scheduled.

"That's why I have a truck," Brown told WBZ-TV on Friday. "You know, it has four-wheel drive. If she needs a ride, I'm happy to pick her up, and I'll be there, providing the electricity is on."
