The Republican National Committee has told the Commission on Presidential Debates that it intends to make GOP presidential candidates commit to boycotting its events in the future, escalating an ongoing rift between the two organizations that percolated during the 2020 election cycle.
RNC officials sent a letter Thursday to the independent and bipartisan body, which has overseen general election presidential debates for more than three decades, stating the party plans to change its rules and require candidates seeking the Republican nomination to vow not to participate in debates held by the commission.
The article goes on to state the following:
Republicans have complained in recent years that the commission is biased against GOP candidates. That dissatisfaction came to a head in 2020, after a series of clashes between the commission and then-President Donald Trump and his allies.
During both the 2016 and the 2020 presidential elections, many conservatives noted that the moderators chosen for the debates were mostly liberal or left-leaning, and clearly appeared to favor the Democrat candidates.
RNC head Ronna McDaniel said in a letter on Wednesday, “The RNC has a duty to ensure that its future presidential nominees have the opportunity to debate their opponents on a level playing field,” and vowed to “take every step to ensure that future Republican presidential nominees are given that opportunity elsewhere.”
For years, the Commission on Presidential Debates has shown bias against Republicans.
Since they continue to stonewall commonsense reforms, the RNC is leveling the playing field to make debates fair for future nominees.
