Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus complained that the CNBC moderators weren’t fair to the Republican presidential candidates on Wednesday night.
“I just can’t tell you how pissed off I am,” said Priebus. “It was insanity. Obviously we had assurances that it was going to be straight up finance, which is what they do every day, and what was delivered was just nothing but a crap sandwich.”
The RNC Chairman added that the Republican party will work to make changes to future debates. Priebus said the committee will meet with several of the campaigns to figure out how to make the campaigns “fairer” for all candidates. They basically want cupcake questions and subjects.
“Everything is going to be reevaluated and reset. Every debate on the calendar is going to be reevaluated, reset, look at the format, the moderators, everything,” he said. “We’re going to have meetings with all the candidates. We’re going to make sure that we can do everything possible to make sure last night doesn’t happen again.”
