Declaring that it was time to “set politics aside,” Senator John McCain said Wednesday that he would temporarily stop campaigning and seek to delay Friday’s debate with Senator Barack Obama to return to Washington to help forge an agreement on a proposed $700 billion bailout of financial institutions before Congress.

The Obama campaign rejected the call by Mr. McCain, the Republican presidential nominee, to delay the debate, and aides noted that Mr. McCain only made the offer after Mr. Obama reached out to his opponent asking him to issue a joint statement calling for a bipartisan resolution to the financial crisis.
