The Oregon Republican Party canceled its presidential debate Thursday, four days before it was to have been held, because Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum both declined invitations.

Organizers decided that without the front-runners, the Monday night debate wasn't worth holding, Oregon Public Broadcasting told KATU-TV. Oregon Public Broadcasting was hosting the debate.

A party spokesman said the campaigns told him that a change of strategies prompted them to decline the invitation, KATU reported.

"It is disappointing," said Oregon Republican Party Chairman Allen Alley. "It's just the campaigns have moved to a different mode where they're going state by state, very tactical about delegates in each of those states."

Only Newt Gingrich had formally accepted the debate invitation, according to Oregon Public Broadcasting.
