My memory might be shot, but I think that it was the Romney team itself that agreed to Candy Crowley and those other liberal democratic hacks.
You are correct. I contacted the RNC, furious about them once again entering into debates moderated by the same liberal gang. I was told it was the nominees decision. I was also told, that the names of moderators submitted were unbelievable, that the ones chosen were conservative by comparison to the other options.
