NH GOP drops sponsorship of FOX News debate

The New Hampshire Republican Party dropped their affiliation with a Republican debate sponsored by Fox News tomorrow night because they have limited the number of candidates that can participate.

“The first-in-the-nation New Hampshire primary serves a national purpose by giving all candidates an equal opportunity on a level playing field,” said Republican chair Fergus Cullen. “Only in New Hampshire do lesser known, lesser funded underdogs have a fighting chance to establish themselves as national figures.”

The Fox debate is excluding Texas Congressman Ron Paul even though he polls higher in New Hampshire and has raised significantly more money, and is campaigning more in New Hampshire than Fred Thompson who is invited.

”We look forward to presenting a substantive forum which will serve as the first program of its kind this election season,” David Rhodes, vice president of Fox News, said in a statement.

    This is a positive development. It is time to kick the kids off the stage and let the adults have a lengthy conversation.

    Unfortunately for the democrats, their adult candidates poll 1%, and their children poll 30%, but that is their problem.

    These candidates have had enough debates to gain traction. Exit the stage gracefully if you cannot get a national presence.
