NY mayor's race debate changed due to Sandy

NEW YORK (AP) — The final debate between New York's mayoral candidates Bill de Blasio and Joe Lhota has been rescheduled to Wednesday to avoid coinciding with the one year anniversary of Superstorm Sandy.

The last of three debates between Democrat Bill de Blasio, who's leading in the polls, and Republican Joe Lhota was originally scheduled for Tuesday, Oct. 29, the day one year ago that Sandy slammed into New York.

The New York City Campaign Finance Board announced the date change on Sunday after the two candidates released a joint statement requesting the change in order to "properly commemorate" the storm.

Sandy pummeled the East Coast, killing more than 180 people and causing an estimated $65 billion in damage, making it the second-costliest cyclone in the U.S. behind Hurricane Katrina.
