Glenn Beck, sent an open letter to Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus Monday, requesting TheBlaze TV host the ninth scheduled GOP presidential debate, Feb. 26, 2016. The letter comes after Priebus announced that he is suspending the partnership with NBC News for an upcoming debate, replacing them with National Review following a widely criticized disaster at the debate hosted by CNBC in Boulder, Colorado.
Beck said in an interview Monday night that TheBlaze would bring in issue experts, such as Thomas Sowell (PPD columnist), to pose economic questions to the candidates. He said voters “don’t need to hear sound bites reaffirming” red meat issues, but rather “meaningful, thoughtful and responsive” responses “to the issues of … all Americans.”
“Our body of questions and responses will become a digital library of conservative thought to guide voters as they make critical choices in the months ahead,” Beck wrote.
