    Establishment media outlets CNN and ABC News are reportedly interested in hosting independent Republican primary presidential debates in the coming months. Some GOP candidates previously voiced support for additional debates, though it is unknown if they would participate in establishment network events. GOP presidential candidate Vivek Ramaswamy slammed the Republican National Committee (RNC) for allowing NBC News the privilege to host the November 8 debate. The networks could independently schedule the debates in coming months, Politico reported Monday:

    Presidential candidate Vivek Ramaswamy is once again pressuring the Republican National Committee to change their debate format after audience declines across the previous three showdowns. “This January GOP debate should be held on X, not on cable TV, moderated by Tucker [Carlson], who might just ask questions that primary voters actually care about,” Ramaswamy said in a statement to The Post on Friday. “They say they want to reach younger voters and new audiences? Well that’s how you do it,” the 38-year-old biotech entrepreneur added. The first Republican primary debate, hosted by Fox News Channel and held on Aug. 23...

    The Republican National Committee (RNC) threatened to prevent GOP presidential candidates from taking part in future party-sanctioned debates if they engaged in an open-press event in Iowa next week, drawing backlash from Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis. Prior to the agreement over the format of the forum, in an Oct. 28 letter to the respective presidential campaigns the RNC Counsel's Office said that any candidate who participates in the Nov. 17 Des Moines event would violate their pledge to not participate in non-RNC-sanctioned primary debates. "The Forum is NOT a debate," he wrote in a post to X. "Thus, the RNC...

    The fourth Republican presidential primary debate of this cycle will be hosted by NewsNation, the “Megyn Kelly Show” on SiriusXM radio and the Washington Free Beacon newspaper, the Republican National Committee announced Thursday — representing a shift away from the establishment media outlets that hosted the first three debates. NewsNation anchor Elizabeth Vargas, talk show host Megyn Kelly and Washington Free Beacon editor in chief Eliana Johnson will moderate the Dec. 6 debate in Tuscaloosa, Ala., the RNC said. In a statement, Johnson touted the move to lesser-known outlets as a positive for Republicans, saying they were excited “to offer...

    Former United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley blasted entrepreneur Vivek Ramaswamy as “scum” after he brought up her daughter on Wednesday night’s third Republican presidential debate stage in Miami. “In the last debate, she made fun of me for actually joining TikTok while her own daughter was actually using the app for a long time. So you might want to take care of your family first,” Ramaswamy said as the candidates clashed over the video-sharing app, which is owned by Beijing-based parent company ByteDance. “Leave my daughter out of your voice,” Haley said. “You’re just scum.”

    Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis continues to try and fight back against former President Donald Trump and beat allegations he wears lifts and high heels that masquerade as boots. Trump and other opponents have put out conspiracy theories that the candidate uses lifts in his boots to look taller. Speaking to Eric Bolling Thursday, DeSantis took on the claims again and tried to hit back at Trump for his lack of attendance at Republican Primary debates. 'This is no time for foot fetishes, we've got serious problems in the country,' DeSantis said, before explaining the myriad problems with the country under...

    After a second debate widely panned as “disappointing” by conservative viewers and pundits, strategists are questioning whether the Republican National Committee’s (RNC) third presidential primary debate hosted by NBC serves much of a purpose at all. The RNC gave its first two debates to Fox News and Fox Business, the second of which was heavily criticized for not focusing on the issues Republican primary voters care about. Despite that criticism, the RNC gave its third debate on Nov. 8 to NBC, failing to meet earlier promises to prioritize up-and-coming conservative, independent media for coverage. [cut] The RNC’s current chairman of...

    Many leading Republicans and conservatives want someone other than Donald Trump to run for President in 2024. But this judgment requires an assessment of Trump’s vices and virtues in the context of our current political and cultural circumstances, as well as an assessment of other prospective Republican presidential candidates. Tom Klingenstein, Chairman of the Claremont Institute, explains Trump's Virtues.
