The Republican National Committee (RNC) criticized the Commission on Presidential Debates (CPD) that has organized the presidential and vice presidential general election debates for over thirty years, stating that it will advise GOP presidential candidates against participating in debates until reforms are adopted.

RNC Chair Ronna McDaniel penned a letter to the nonpartisan CPD to voice her objections to the way the commission holds debates, Fox News first reported.

“The CPD’s repeated missteps and the partisan actions of its Board Members make clear that the organization no longer provides the fair and impartial forum for presidential debates which the law requires and the American people deserve,” McDaniel wrote.

Former president Donald Trump criticized the body ahead of the 2020 election over the debate format as well as moderator selection and performance during the general election debates.  One such debate between Trump and Democratic candidate Joe Biden was cancelled after Trump was diagnosed with COVID.
