(CNSNews) - Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) says "sure," the Republican National Committee is at fault for allowing debates where liberal moderators "belittle" and "insult" Republican candidates rather than "help primary voters decide who to vote for."
"Why would our primary debates be moderated by people with an agenda of defeating whoever the Republican nominee is?" Cruz asked on Thursday.
Cruz noted that both the Democrat debates and the Republican debates "are primarily moderated by liberals...it's the same people," but the objectives are different, he told Fox News' Bret Baier.
"In the Democratic debate, they get a ton of love from the moderators, and it's all praising the different candidates, avoiding too much clash. On the Republican side, you look at an awful lot of the media interviewers, their object is whoever the Republican nominee is, to beat up on them, and to have people either stay home or vote for Hillary Clinton.
