Fox News Channel yesterday (March 16th) canceled the Republican presidential debate it was to host that was planned for next Monday (March 21st) in Utah after Donald Trump, and then Ohio Governor John Kasich, said they wouldn’t participate.
Trump said on Fox News yesterday morning that he couldn’t attend the debate because he had a speech planned for that night instead at the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC)’s annual conference.
Texas Senator Ted Cruz said he was willing to debate just Kasich, but Kasich said he wouldn’t participate if Trump wasn’t going to be there. The Monday debate, which would have been the 13th GOP debate, was the last one scheduled for the primary season.
However, the Republican National Committee has said there might be a 14th if the primary contest continues into April.
