We told you earlier this year that the RNC was considering banning Republican candidates from participating in debates sponsored by the Commission on Presidential Debates.
Well today the RNC has just voted unanimously to completely pull out of the president debate commission, saying they will find a new group to sponsor the debates that can be impartial:
WASHINGTON TIMES – The Republican National Committee is withdrawing from presidential debates sponsored by the Commission on Presidential Debates, saying the body has proved too partisan to be trusted to host the high-profile showdowns.
RNC Chair Ronna McDaniel said the RNC voted to pull out of the CPD after the group refused to adopt changes in response to the GOP’s complaints.
“Today, the RNC voted to withdraw from the biased CPD, and we are going to find newer, better debate platforms to ensure that future nominees are not forced to go through the biased CPD in order to make their case to the American people,” Ms. McDaniel said.
With so many journalists on the right these days, it’s about dang time the RNC did something like to make presidential debates great again.
We’ve all seen time and time again how biased these moderators can be. I look forward to a debate commission that treats the candidates fairly.
