Republicans Tighten Grip on Debates

The RNC "moved Friday to seize control of the presidential primary debates in 2016, another step in a coordinated effort by the party establishment to reshape the nominating process," the New York Times reports.

"Committee members overwhelmingly passed a measure that would penalize any presidential candidate who participated in a debate not sanctioned by the national party, by limiting their participation in subsequent committee-sanctioned forums. The move represents the party's effort to reduce the number of debates and assert control over how they are staged."
