Now keep in mind, this information is coming from CNBC who could just be trying to deflect some of the heat they’ve been getting after the last debate. Especially since the RNC pulled out of the upcoming NBC debate. Also keep in mind that Jeb Bush is considered the “heir apparent” by the RNC…
In the middle of the CNBC-hosted GOP debate on Wednesday, RNC chief strategist and spokesman Sean Spicer and chief of staff Katie Walsh approached CNBC officials about the amount of speaking time candidates were getting.
“Several campaigns had a concern about time allotments, we approached CNBC on multiple occasions to give us a read out of times as they promised and they refused,” Spicer said in a statement.
A CNBC employee who was involved in putting on the debate and with direct knowledge of the conversations, said Spicer and Walsh approached CNBC during the debate, saying they were concerned about time allotments, but that Bush was the only campaign mentioned by name. The same complaint had come directly from the Bush team, as campaign manager Danny Diaz confronted CNBC producers during the debate about Bush’s speaking time.
Considering Jeb needed all the help he could get, who do you think is telling the truth?
