I also hope this is the year we have ACTUAL presidential debates
The RNC is going to require that presidential candidates pledge to not participate in presidential debates.
The GOP is fully withdrawing from democracy.
BREAKING: The RNC says it will require all presidential candidates to pledge to NOT participate in any debates run by the Commission on Presidential Debates, breaking a decades-long tradition.
Who agrees these Republican cowards FEAR THE TRUTH? ✋
For a political party that doesn't really believe in democracy to pull out of these presidential debates seems entirely predictable. Why debate the issues if the issues don't count, truth doesn't matter, and the only election outcome you'll honor is a win? https://t.co/aswnseb3QR
NEWS: The RNC has told the Commission on Presidential Debates that it's preparing to require presidential candidates to refuse to take part in those debates, potentially leading to a significant change in how debates have been conducted for 35 years https://t.co/v08IlEsG3L
Voting rights reform crumbling in the face of active coup plotting. The Supreme Court shutting down a vaccine mandate during a long pandemic. The Republican Party opting out of presidential debates. All in a day, all giving the feeling of democratic erosion and collapse.
JUST IN: RNC Chair Ronna Romney McDaniel just announced that the Republican Party will require Republican nominees to NOT participate in presidential debates that are run by the Commission on Presidential Debates.
The commission has run the debates for 34 years.
Republicans are officially removing themselves from democracy by not participating in the Presidential Debates.
This is a absolutely the right move, no Republican should allow lib media partisans to manipulate presidential debates anymore by participating in them. Has been a total sham. https://t.co/oHXcoQAT1a
"The Republican National Committee is preparing to change its rules to require presidential candidates seeking the party’s nomination to sign a pledge to not participate in any debates sponsored by the Commission on Presidential Debates,” reports @maggieNYT
We are discussing whether to have presidential debates. Trumpism has set the country back several decades.
No voting rights. No Presidential debates. And during a worldwide plague, let's try to kill as many people in the workplace as we can. Big day for the GOP philosophy, sincere congrats.
Republicans deciding to no longer participate in presidential debates allows them to finally abandon all pretense of being a political party and concentrate full-time on being a terrorist organization.
Republicans can't win a fair fight and they know it. Regardless of the RNC’s tantrum, voters can count on hearing from President Biden and Vice President Harris who are proud of their records. https://t.co/rrDUlXOk0l

This is like playing football and your opponent's assistant coaches get to be the referees.
Tell the country you don't have a platform without telling the country you don't have a platform.

This is consistent with the GOP refusal to treat any institution related to elections not controlled by themselves as illegitimate.
RNC may require candidates to pledge not to participate in forums organized by bipartisan Commission on Presidential Debates
So fucking what? That just means they forfeit the debates, I assume. Not attending means you're chickenshit, so that will be your prize.
