A Republican National Committee official says party leaders are troubled by the staging of recent presidential debates and are interested in having the party take control of the events for the 2016 election cycle.

Arizona national committeeman and the chairman of the RNC’s rules committee, Bruce Ash, says he and other party officials are concerned that the party doesn’t have full control over such matters as debate topics, broadcasts, locations and audiences.

Ash says what’s at stake is how the candidates are introduced to the country.

Ash says the concerns and the possibility of making changes for 2016 will be discussed by the RNC during an April meeting to be held in Scottsdale, Ariz.
