RNC shakes up staff to calm GOP campaigns’ growing frustrations over debates

Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus decided late Sunday to shake up his senior staff in response to campaigns’ complaints about the party’s management of primary debates.

Priebus has elevated Sean Cairncross, the chief operating officer of the RNC and its former chief counsel, to be the GOP’s new lead debate negotiator and organizer.

The move effectively gives the debate responsibilities currently held by Sean Spicer, the RNC’s chief strategist and spokesman, to Cairncross. Spicer, a confidant of Priebus, will remain in his role but will work in a supplementary position when it comes to arranging the debates.

    It is clear the RNC wants a Rhino that the New World order can control and they are willing to trash their future and the voters to get it.
