McCain backs out of rally at Christian university
John McCain's campaign canceled an appearance scheduled for today at Cedarville University in Ohio.
Cedarville's spokesman John Davis told CT that a grassroots organization in the Cedarville area rented the Baptist university's space for the rally. The university was told that because of Friday's debate and today's $700 billion bailout vote, the rally was canceled.
Cedarville President Bill Brown announced the scheduled rally during Friday's chapel service but told students later in the day that the event was canceled. McCain and running mate Sarah Palin did appear at a rally in Columbus today.
