Republican Party Threatens to Boycott U.S. Presidential Debate Commission | Top News


(Reuters) – The U.S. Republican Party on Thursday said its future presidential candidates might not participate in debates run by the Commission on Presidential Debates due to concerns about fairness, upending decades of tradition.

She said the party would try to help future Republican presidential nominees participate in debates that are organized more fairly.

Last year, McDaniel and other party officials asked the commission to agree to changes in how it conducts its business and how the debates were held.

The RNC rule change could be made official at an upcoming party meeting, McDaniel said.
