Note on CNN Debate
Due to the catastrophic destruction caused by Hurricane Michael, Governor Scott will be solely focused on response and recovery efforts. Ensuring Florida’s Panhandle and Big Bend communities can rebuild and return to their homes and jobs is top priority. We are sure Senator Nelson agrees. So, today, the Scott for Florida campaign has asked CNN to postpone the debate between Governor Scott and Senator Nelson for two weeks (originally scheduled for next Tuesday, 10/16).
We appreciate CNN understanding the dire situation in North Florida. Floridians deserve the chance to see candidates debate so they can judge their leadership skills, experience, and differences. Governor Scott looks forward to debating, but will have no time for campaigning in the next few weeks as he focuses exclusively on recovery efforts for the foreseeable future.
