Geee Posted September 1, 2015 Share Posted September 1, 2015 Washingrton Times: CNN has scheduled a phone call at 5 p.m. EDT on Tuesday with the GOP presidential campaigns to discuss changes to the criteria determining which candidates will get to appear on main stage at the next debate later this month, The Washington Times has learned. The call is the outgrowth of negotiations between CNN and the Republican National Committee, which sanctions the party’s debates, to address concerns raised by the GOP’s only female candidate, Carly Fiorina, that the original criteria wrongly has kept her from the stage even as she is rising in the polls. The call and the expectation of changes were confirmed by two campaign operatives for separate campaigns. The sources, who spoke only on condition of anonymity, said CNN originally scheduled the call for 1:30 p.m. and then delayed it until 5 p.m. RNC chief strategist Sean Spicer, who has been overseeing the debates, declined comment Tuesday afternoon. 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
