Scott, Nelson Postpone 2nd Debate After Hurricane Michael

A Florida Senate debate between Democratic Sen. Bill Nelson and Republican Gov. Rick Scott has been postponed because of Hurricane Michael.

A CNN statement says the live debate planned for Tuesday night will be rescheduled for a later date. The statement says both campaigns agreed to the delay so the candidates can focus on response and recovery to the storm.

Florida's race between Nelson and Scott is closely watched around the country as a key battleground for control of the Senate.

Nelson and Scott have met so far in one debate, earlier this month on Telemundo51, which broadcast mainly on Spanish-language stations around Florida.
