If the GOP wants to whittle down the debates, it's simple fix

NO one participates until ALL their paperwork is done, and on file with the FEC and media.. (NO EXTENSIONS)..

I'm sure that some of them (especially Trump) will drag their feet until the very last second, and will then bow out after he has caused shitstorm after shitstorm.

Only TRUE candidates, who have followed every rule to the letter, should be participating in debates ..

That one thing would separate the wheat from the chaf

2. I want them all!

What a glorious vein of material for comedians and Democratic candidates! Who needs 2 billion dollars in campaign funds when all you have to do is give these guys a mic and a camera? Pure gold.

5. But probably most have not filred ALL the paperwork

Anyone with the filing fee can start the process, but not many do ALL the work..like banking records, tax info etc.. Look how long Mittens failed to do that..and never really did do all she should have..

Trump can (and others as well) can get 2 45-day extensions, before filing the final bits of info..

6. I clinked on all the Democratic candidates

and the major Republican candidates. It appears none of them have filed anything more than the simple one page declaration of candidacy.
