EXCLUSIVE: While Republicans talked publicly about gaining more control over their presidential debates, a panel of Republican National Committee members conferred in secret for months to create rules and penalties that would ensure 2016 candidates toed the line, according to interviews and internal emails reviewed by The Washington Times.
Once again attempting to achieve the impossible for a single party in a two-party system, Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus did his best at the RNC's summer meeting here to show respect for the many competing strains of thought in his party.
Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour startled Republican officials from around the country with a blunt admonition Wednesday: Raise enough money to carry your state for the GOP in 2012 — or get out of the way and let someone else lead.
Mr. Ryder added that he "could not find any reference to the COA" in his personal copies of minutes of RNC meetings and no formal record that the COA members had been officially appointed in accordance with RNC rules.
Tennessee RNC member John Ryder said the RNC's handling of the COA controversy mirrored other problems the organization has had in responding to outside criticism.
