Chuck Todd: RNC Debate Schedule ‘Very Logical’

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.
