NBC’s “Meet the Press” host Chuck Todd said that he thought the RNC’s 2016 presidential primary debate schedule was “very logical” on Friday’s “Hugh Hewitt Show.”
“It’s, I think, very logical. I’ve been one of these people, you know, a lot of people had asked me how do I feel about having the RNC dictating and decide whether we get a debate, and how it works. And I’m like ‘you know what? The Democrats did this in ’04. And frankly, I don’t like sitting there having to compete with other networks, and beg candidates to show up and all these things.’ I think in a primary, this is fine. It’s sort of this, it just, it’s less of a headache, and the order makes a lot of sense to me. I’m happy with the NBC debate that we got. We basically got the, I think the last one after, it was going, before you hit Super Tuesday in Florida. So I’m happy with the NBC position as well. So I got no complaints about what they did, and I think it’s a logical schedule. One a month feels right in…’15, starting in August, and then you speed it up as the primaries get closer” he stated.
