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.
