And the back track:

Now, Presidential Debate Commission Co-Chair Frank Fahrenkopf is calling Crowley a "mistake" as a moderator.

According to Jon Ralston, the Nevada-based political journalist, Fahrenkopf told the audience there that he was proud of the 2012 debate moderators, but added: “We made one mistake this time: Her name is Candy."
