Priebus says expect more ‘elbows thrown’ at debate
Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus says he expects more aggressive performances at Wednesday’s presidential debate. And he says some candidates will have to start dropping out because there’s not enough money to go around.
He tells CNN’s "State of the Union" that "there will probably be more elbows thrown at that debate," and so expect more GOP White House hopefuls to drop out of the crowded contest for the party’s nomination. That raises the prospect that those onstage Wednesday take more direct aim at the race’s bombastic front-runner, Donald Trump.
Preibus warns the candidates to proceed with caution: "All these candidates are going to have to account for their own mouths and their own words."
Trump is the hopeful who has gotten in trouble for his own words the most after verbal attacks on women and virtually anyone who disagrees with or challenges him.
