Shepard Smith Reports Mississippi Not Happy About McCain Postponing Debate

Reported by Deborah - September 24, 2008 -

Nancy Pfotenhauer was all ready, 9/24, with her statement lauding John McCain for "putting country first" by suspending his campaign and postponing Friday's debate in Mississippi. Pfotenauer claimed the decision was "vintage John McCain" and injected a challenge to Obama, "Nobody deserves this job, the job of Commander-in-chief and President, if they're not willing to put this country first."

Smith reminded Pfotenhauer that Mississippi has been planning for this night since 2007 and could lose millions with a postponement adding that it could even lose McCain the State in the election.

ABC reports:

"Andrew Mullins, special assistant to university Chancellor Robert Khayat, told ABC News that the Ole Miss campus has been transformed to accommodate the candidates and the press. Road blocks are in place on campus and in the community and the debate television set for the candidates has already been constructed. He said the university has spent roughly five and half million dollars getting ready for the debate."

Meantime, Harry Reid was not impressed with the "vintage McCain" decision asking him not to come because it would be counter productive to inject politics into the process.
