Edwards Will NOT Participate in Fox News Debate

Kos has been contacting campaigns on whether or not they intend to participate in the Fox News debate in Reno in August and he initially intended to start posting responses tomorrow. However, the Edwards campaign was so quick and clear, he posted their response tonight:

We will not be participating in the Fox debate. We're going to make lots of appearances in Nevada, including debates. By the end of March, we will have attended three presidential forums in Nevada - and there are already at least three proposed Nevada debates. We're definitely going to debate in Nevada, but we don't see why this needs to be one of them.

Kudos to Edwards. He's quite right about this. There are enought debates and forums in Nevada for candidates to attend, so why not skip the Fox News debate? He might have been encouraged by the Ann Coulter slur against him which she got to defend on, yeah you guessed it, Fox News where she is also a regular contributor.

Let's hope other campaigns will soon follow.

However, something might happen in the meantime as the Executive Board of the Nevada State Democratic Party is apparently having a conference call tomorrow morning. Wonder how much heat outgoing Chair Tom Collins is going to have to take for this skrew up of a decision. Yet, the question remains:

Why is Harry Reid silent?
