Republican presidential campaigns are planning to gather in Washington, D.C., on Sunday evening to plot how to alter their party's messy debate process — and how to remove power from the hands of the Republican National Committee.There's complete chaos and constant revolt in the Congressional Republican caucus. Why not in the Republican primary?
Not invited to the meeting: Anyone from the RNC, which many candidates have openly criticized in the hours since Wednesday's CNBC debate in Boulder, Colorado — a chaotic, disorganized affair that was widely panned by political observers.
On Thursday, many of the campaigns told POLITICO that the RNC, which has taken a greater role in the 2016 debate process than in previous election cycles, had failed to take their concerns into account. It was time, top aides to at least half a dozen of the candidates agreed, to begin discussing among themselves how the next debates should be structured and not leave it up to the RNC and television networks.
If I weren't all too aware that nothing reunites Republicans like a Democratic nominee they are keen to defeat, I would enjoy watching the spectacle of the Republican Party potentially destroying itself.
Plus there's that whole thing about how there's still a real chance that one of these bozos could become the next president and steer the country into utter ruin, which kind of puts a damper on any potential enjoyment at watching this clusterfucktastrophe.
