McCain Will Participate in Debate, Campaign Says Sen. John McCain will attend the first presidential debate tonight, his campaign announced. McCain said earlier this week he would not attend the debate if an agreement had not been reached on a $700 billion bailout plan for Wall Street. The campaign said the Republican presidential nominee believed that enough progress had been made for him to travel to Mississippi to participate in the debate, set for 9 pm ET at the University of Mississippi.
