Fourth Brown-Warren debate should go forward

US Senator Scott Brown and Democratic challenger Elizabeth Warren should reschedule the high-profile debate that was canceled due to Hurricane Sandy.

At the height of the winds Monday evening, Brown pulled out of the debate, which had been scheduled for Tuesday, and Warren seemed to agree with the decision; candidates for US Senate might reasonably decide that it wouldn’t have been appropriate to hold a campaign-related event the following night — and might have interfered with storm coverage. But as the winds abated over the course of the day Tuesday, so did the sense of immediate crisis. While Warren has said she’s amenable to another debate Thursday, Brown’s campaign said late that Tuesday he wouldn’t be able to reschedule.
