Centre College Withdraws Invitation To Host U.S. Senate Debate

Centre College withdrew its invitation on Monday to host a U.S. Senate debate on September 3, 2014.

The school said the idea was scrapped because neither Mitch McConnell nor Alison Lundergan Grimes would commit to it.

The school in Danville recently announced the debate invitation with much fanfare during a news conference.  There were even sponsors named for the event.

Centre College is no stranger to political debates.

The school hosted two Vice-Presidential debates in 2000 and 2012.
