Boca Raton mayor gives away debate ticket, plans to attend rock concert instead

Included on the list of people who won't be attending tonight's presidential debate in Boca Raton, Fla: The city's mayor, Susan Whelchel.

"The President of Lynn [University], Kevin Ross, did offer me a ticket to be in attendance at the debate but I felt it only right to give it to a student," Whelchel said in an email sent to the Sun Sentinel.

She explained where she'll be instead. "I will be in Mizner Park on Monday night at the kickoff with [pop rock band] Neon Trees and the Debate watch to follow."

Neon Trees is performing in the "Rock the Vote" concert just before the debate starts.
