Political watchers reminder: CNN has canceled its March 1, Republican presidential debate scheduled in Georgia after three of four candidates have declined to participate, citing busy campaign schedules leading to Super Tuesday on March 6.

“Mitt Romney and Ron Paul told the Georgia Republican Party, Ohio Republican Party, and CNN Thursday that they will not participate in the March 1 Republican presidential primary debate,” CNN said in a statement. “Without full participation of all four candidates, CNN will not move forward with the Super Tuesday debate.”
Rick Santorum also said he would not participate, leaving only Newt Gingrich committed to attending in his home state.
