RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel said the decision was made because the commission is bias and won't make “common sense” reforms.

“Debates are an important part of the democratic process, and the RNC is committed to free and fair debates,” McDaniel said. “The Commission on Presidential Debates is biased and has refused to enact simple and commonsense reforms to help ensure fair debates including hosting debates before voting begins and selecting moderators who have never worked for candidates on the debate stage.”

She also said the RNC will seek a “newer, better debate platforms to ensure that future nominees are not forced to go through the biased CPD in order to make their case to the American people.”
