2016 RNC changes: "no longer going to participate in a circus of debates"Submitted by michaelmalak on Fri, 01/24/2014 - 15:29
The Republican National Committee gave near-unanimous approval Friday to a package of rules changes that would condense the 2016 presidential nominating calendar and help the party avoid the kind of protracted party infighting that dented GOP nominee Mitt Romney's general election appeal in 2012.
"This is an historic day for our party," RNC Chairman Reince Priebus said after the vote.
"We have been saying for months that we were no longer going to sit around and allow ourselves to slice and dice for six months, participate in a circus of debates, that we were going to take hold once again of our responsibility at the Republican National Committee because we are the custodians of the nomination process and today I believe was historical and obviously very important to the future of our party and our country."
I did have hope that the circus of finger breaking and arrests would not be repeated. Looks like I needn't worry now.
