After two presidential hopefuls declined to participate in a debate, CNN canceled the Republican primary event that had been scheduled for March 1, reports TVNewser.com.

Mitt Romney and Ron Paul said they wouldn’t join the debate, according to the story.

CNN released a statement saying: “Without full participation of all four candidates, CNN will not move forward with the Super Tuesday debate. However, next week, CNN and the Arizona Republican Party will host all four leading contenders for the GOP nomination. That debate will be held in Mesa, Arizona, on February 22 and will be moderated by CNN’s John King.”
