This from the AARP which is sponsoring the debate which would have been broadcast by Prairie Public Television:
Friday night’s debate between Kevin Cramer (R) and Heidi Heitkamp (D) will not be held because of pending U.S. Senate votes. We are working to reschedule. Meanwhile, you can participate in upcoming telephone town hall meetings with both candidates. https://t.co/j3gjL6GCXc

I’m guessing the votes are related to Kavanaugh, meaning it was Heitkamp who had to cancel (Cramer, a member of the House, obviously wouldn’t be casting a Senate confirmation vote).
And can’t blame Heitkamp for canceling. That’s her job. Still, what a nightmare this process has been for her campaign. What with the ugly polling news out this week Heitkamp conceivably could have used the debate to shift the narrative and perhaps get momentum going back in her direction.
But now, not so much.
