Friday kicks off with no firm answer from McCain on whether he’s heading to Oxford, Mississippi this evening.
Sen. Graham on NBC: Suggests he is going to Mississippi Friday, but says more important than debating is reaching an agreement that protects taxpayers and saves the country from “financial Pearl Harbor.”
Obama strategist Gibbs on MSNBC: Obama is heading to Ole Miss regardless. May take questions or hold a town hall meeting if McCain doesn’t show.
Meanwhile: NY Times reports Obama team is heading to Mississippi for debate.
