O’Donnell had been set to appear on “Face the Nation” on CBS and “Fox News Sunday.”

Diane Banister, whose public relations firm booked the shows for O’Donnell, said in an e-mail Saturday that O’Donnell canceled so she could attend a Republican campaign event Sunday in Delaware’s Sussex County.On Friday, O’Donnell made her first national appearance since her primary win in Washington at the annual Values Voters Summit. Her appearances on the news shows would have further put her in the national spotlight.

O’Donnell’s campaign manager did not immediately return phone messages from The Associated Press.
