Huckabee on Undercard Status: 'Networks and RNC Have Manipulated This Proces'
By Bill Hoffmann

Echoing the sentiments of Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky, Mike Huckabee tells Newsmax TV the Republican National Committee (RNC) is chiefly responsible for getting him banished to the undercard in Thursday’s GOP debate.

"I don't like being on the undercard. I'd rather be on the main stage, I think I should be," Huckabee said Wednesday on "The Steve Malzberg Show."

"The whole process by which people are selected is utterly absurd. The networks and the RNC have manipulated this process and in many ways, when they lament who's leading the polls, well they created this monster. It's very unfortunate."

Both Paul and Huckabee who have previously assigned to the primetime debate stage were informed this week that they have been relegated to the under card because of their low polling numbers. That prompted a disgusted Paul to say he would skip the event.

"What should have happened is that all of the legitimate, bona fide candidates should have had their names put in a hat, those names drawn just before the debate, you had an equal number on both stages," Huckabee said.

"If you said there was too many for one stage, and so there would be sort of an ever-changing mix of people who would be in the debates against each other."

I actually think the RNC loves having Trump out in front, because the media isn't playing 'gotcha' with all the other candidates...with stuff like the war on women, race issues, and gay rights. Trump is taking most of the flak..and he's very capable in handling it.
