Donald Trump and Newsmax Should Host a GOP Debate, Not MSNBC and CNN

By + More

The point of a Republican primary election is to choose a candidate to represent the modern Republican party in the campaign for the presidency.

Why then have Republicans allowed some nice folks from MSNBC or Bloomberg or CNN to frame the conversation between Republican candidates and Republican voters? They ask questions that liberal elites find endlessly fascinating, not questions important to Reagan Republicans.

That is why I am encouraged that Newsmax, the great conservative magazine and website run by leading conservative Christopher Ruddy, will be hosting a debate in Iowa on December 27. According to Nielson data, over 7 million Americans visit each month. Four million subscribe to the Newsmax E-mail list and over a million people read the Newsmax print magazine. Therefore the debate questions will be of interest to Republicans, not liberals. Success will be measured by how much Republican voters learn about their prospective leaders. Donald Trump as "ringmaster" or moderator will command attention and eyeballs.

A serious conversation between Republicans watched by millions--that will help the goal of electing a president willing to create jobs and reduce the size and cost of government.
