    place some kind of new rule that prohibits any candidate  running in the primary from agreeing to any debate not specifically sanctioned by the RNC?

    That's absurd. It looks to me like the RNC is freaking out in advance. While I agree that 23 debates seems ridiculous, the reason there were so many debates is that there were a large number of candidates who persisted in their campaigns long after they had absolutely no chance of winning a national election.

    It's the GOP's fault that they attract and tolerate candidates that simply use the primary for all sorts of personal reasons, to promote their book, raise cash to pay off old campaign debts, as a bully pulpit to punish former rivals, etc.
