Sen. John McCain may have bailed on David Letterman today, but he found time to sit down with another CBS broadcaster. CBS News just announced that the Republican presidential nominee gave anchor Katie Couric an exclusive interview that will air on tonight’s “CBS Evening News.” The interview was taped at the CBS News headquarters in Manhattan this evening.

In their discussion, Couric spoke to McCain about his decision to suspend his campaign because of the economic crisis and his position on the Bush administration’s bailout plan.

The CBS anchor also interviewed McCain’s running mate, Sarah Palin, earlier today. Portions of that interview will air tonight and tomorrow.
