Rick Santorum Trumpets Beck, Limbaugh, Hannity as Presidential Debate Moderators

Rick Santorum, the 2012 Republican presidential candidate, voiced support for the Republican Party’s threat to yank GOP presidential primary debates from CNN and NBC.

Last week, Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus protested the two networks’ plan for feature films on likely 2016 Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. As a consequence, Priebus said he would as the full committee to approve a measure to prevent primary debates from airing on the networks.

“Look, we already as Republicans allow the media to run over us,” said Santorum, who won 11 states during the 2012 primaries, coming in second place to eventual nominee Mitt Romney. “Republicans allow moderators who will never vote for any of them to frame the debate, he said, adding, “Can you imagine a Democratic debate where Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity and Glenn Beck were the moderators?”

The Right Frequency tells about how most conservative talk radio hosts favored Santorum over Romney. The book further goes into detail about the role talkers have played in Republican presidential primaries — helping Bob Dole and George W. Bush win the nomination in 1996 and 2000. However, talk radio doesn’t hold unlimited sway over the nomination process, as was evident in 2008 and 2012.
