After CNBC's disastrous debate performance in Boulder two weeks ago, which was labeled shameful and unprofessional, RNC Chairman Reince Priebus is praising Fox Business and Wall Street Journal moderators for focusing on important issues.
“Debates need to focus on the issues, and that goal was accomplished tonight. Our candidates, not the moderators, were at the center of tonight’s debate, and they were all treated with fairness and respect. Thanks to a well-run debate, the country was able to see our diverse field of talented and exceptionally qualified candidates exchange ideas for how to reinvigorate the economy and put Americans back to work," Priebus said in a statement. “One of the great things about our party is that we are able to have a dynamic exchange about which solutions will secure a prosperous future. That doesn’t apply to Hillary Clinton and the Democrat field, who would rather continue the same old tired policies that have stalled economic growth during the Obama presidency. Americans want the country to change course. Our candidates offer that change, and Hillary Clinton and the Democrats only bring more of the same."
