The first Republican debate, which was to be hosted on May 2 by NBC News and Politico, has been postponed until September, it was announced Wednesday. The reason? Not enough candidates.
The event was due to be hosted at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library. But John Heubush, executive director for the library, said that "too few" candidates "have made the commitment thus far for a debate to be worthwhile in early May."
The award for first presidential debate now goes to Fox News, which is still slated to host a forum in South Carolina on May 5.
