Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus — as he works to address presidential candidates’ frustration with the debate process in the wake of this week’s CNBC face-off — announced Friday that the RNC is “suspending the partnership” with NBC News for an upcoming February debate.
Priebus delivered the news — the latest fallout from a controversial CNBC debate on Wednesday — in a letter to NBC News Chairman Andrew Lack. He noted that CNBC is one of their media properties, even if they do not exercise full editorial control over the network.
Complaining that the CNBC debate was “conducted in bad faith,” Priebus said they need to ensure there is not a repeat performance and will suspend the partnership for a planned debate at the University of Houston on Feb. 26, 2016.
