NEXT GOP PRESIDENTIAL DEBATE WILL BE HOSTED BY QVC ON NOVEMBER 10

QVC Debate
The stage is set for the November 10 GOP presidential debate hosted by QVC

DENVER, Colorado (The Adobo Chronicles) – The Republican National Committee (RNC), disappointed by last night’s conduct of the GOP presidential debate on CNBC, announced that it has decided on a major change in the next televised debate.

Reince Priebus, chair of the RNC, slammed CNBC immediately after the GOP debate hosted by the network ended Wednesday night.

Priebus said in a statement he found the debate “extremely disappointing,” adding that “CNBC should be ashamed of how this debate was handled.”  He vowed to fight to ensure future debates allow for a more robust exchange.

The change will begin with the next GOP debate on November 10 at the Milwaukee Theater in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, originally hosted by FOX Business Network.

Instead of FOX Business Network, the debate will be hosted by QVC, the cable, satellite and broadcast television network, and multinational corporation specializing in televised home shopping.

“We will continue with the theme, ‘Your Money, Your Vote,’ to enable the candidates to discuss their respective economic plans which they were not given the chance to do during the CNBC debate,” Priebus said.

RNC said it could not think of a better network than QVC to host the debate on the economy because of its wide reach and following especially among housewives and retired citizens who control the purses in most households.

Instead of having moderators, candidates will be answering questions from viewers who will be calling in, much like QVC’s regular show format.

DONALD TRUMP DROPS TO NO. 3 IN LATEST POLL, BLAMES POPE FRANCIS

CaptureWASHINGTON, D.C. (The Adobo Chronicles®) – For a solid three-month period, Donald Trump has topped all the polls involving the Republican presidential candidates, leading his rivals by double-digit numbers.

But in just the last week, everything changed for Trump.

The latest USA TODAY GOP power rankings has Trump sliding down to third place, behind Carly Fiorina and Marco Rubio.  The power rankings are determined by about 30 political experts from around the country who are asked who they think is the strongest candidates in the Republican field.

Reacting to his drop in the polls, Trump blamed Pope Francis’ recent visit to the U.S., saying the media stopped covering his campaign to focus on the Pontiff’s events in Washington, D.C., New York and Philadelphia. “The paparazzi that used to follow me wherever I go were nowhere to be seen during the pope’s visit,” Trump said.

Trump’s declining numbers seem to be having a telling effect on his demeanor and campaign strategy.

Last week, Trump announced that he would not “be doing any more Fox shows for the foreseeable future” because he felt the network had treated him “very unfairly.” The foreseeable future turned out to be about six days. He ended his boycott of Fox News with an appearance on The O’Reilly Factor Tuesday night.

 The Trump campaign says to expect a kinder, humbler and gentler candidate going forward. Thanks, in part, to Pope Francis.
