Former Senator John Edwards and his wife, Elizabeth, have canceled a scheduled appearance at Salem State College, a spokeswoman for the Massachusetts school said Tuesday.
The Sept. 23 event, scheduled before Edwards admitted to an extramarital affair with a woman who filmed videos in advance of his failed 2008 Democratic presidential campaign, had been billed as a "conversation with John and Elizabeth Edwards."
Karen Cady, a spokeswoman for Salem State, said that no specific reason was given for the cancellation, and it was not clear whether the Edwards would come at a later date.
"At this point, we don’t know," Cady said. "But we are in the process of securing an alternative speaker for the fall."
Friday, Edwards confirmed a similar speaking engagement scheduled for Sept. 8 at Hofstra University. The speakers' agency representing him, however, informed Hofstra that Elizabeth Edwards would not be accompanying him as previously planned.
