(Newser) – Massachusetts Sen. Scott Brown has pulled out of his fourth and final debate with Democratic challenger Elizabeth Warren, saying that his "calendar simply cannot accommodate a rescheduling of this fourth debate," reports the Boston Globe. The debate had to be moved to tomorrow due to Hurricane Sandy, and Warren had said she would like to participate. “We’ve had three debates but everyone was counting on one more before the election. I think it’s important for the people of Massachusetts to hear directly from the candidates," she said.
