USA Today: CNN is postponing the Sept. 26 presidential debate between Democrat Hillary Clinton and Republican Donald Trump due to Hurricane Harvey, which has already ravaged Texas.
CNN and Fox News have confirmed the postponement.
CNN said Tuesday it had scheduled a special election for Sept. 22 to replace Sen. Luther Strange, a Republican who was elected to fill the seat vacated by Jeff Sessions, the Alabama senator.
A CNN spokesperson declined to say if the debate would be rescheduled.
The debate has been rescheduled in the meantime, but CNN said the candidates have been given more time to prepare.
