Erick Erickson created a buzz this afternoon after tweeting former Massachusetts Governor and Presidential hopeful, Mitt Romney, would not be participating in the Georgia Republican Party/CNN debate on March 1.

The Atlanta Journal Consitution picked up on it as well, stating Romney officials told CNN about their decision  to bow out earlier today.

Chris Kelleher, from the Georgia Republican Party’s Communications team told us he has heard the same reports, but nothing has been communicated to the GA GOP.  And if it’s true? “It’s a shame the votes of Georgia and Ohio, who have the biggest delegations at the convention, won’t get to hear from him,” he said.

Bottom line? “The debate is moving forward and we’re looking forward to it,” Kelleher stated.

UPDATE: As per Sarah Boxer from CBS New Jersey, neither Mitt Romney or Rick Santorum will be participating in the March 1 debate.

 

UPDATE — According to CNN, the Super Tuesday debate is now Cancelled
