On Thursday, the Republican National Committee said it was officially withdrawing from the Commission on Presidential Debates, the group that runs the debates between the Democrat and Republican nominee every four years.

The RNC’s Chairwoman, Ronna McDaniel, said that the decision was made because the debate commission won’t make the “common sense” changes the GOP was requesting.

“Debates are an important part of the democratic process, and the RNC is committed to free and fair debates,” McDaniel said in her announcement. “The Commission on Presidential Debates is biased and has refused to enact simple and commonsense reforms to help ensure fair debates including hosting debates before voting begins and selecting moderators who have never worked for candidates on the debate stage.”

McDaniel added that the RNC will seek a “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.”

As it happens, Trump canceled the last debate for the 2020 election because the Commission wanted to do the last one as a virtual event because of the then growing obsession over COVID.

But even during the debates between Barack Obama and Mitt Romney, the Republicans had about had it with the leftists that were running every presidential debate.

So, in the end, this decision to withdraw from the commission can’t be a surprise to anyone.
