Action 22, a civic group that advocates for 22 southern Colorado counties, planned to play host to Democrat Andrew Romanoff and Republican Senate rivals Ken Buck and Jane Norton on Wednesday.
But the group canceled the debate Tuesday morning. Action 22 president Cathy Garcia blamed early voting and negative campaigning for the lack of interest. She said that many in her group said they'd already voted in the mostly mail-in election that wraps up Aug. 10. Garcia also said that members said they were tired of hearing the candidates attack each other.
