TRANSCRIPT EXCERPTS:

CHAIRMAN REINCE PRIEBUS: We're going to be more involved in both the debate process and the primary calendar process, but the reason we're doing it is to protect our Party and our eventual nominee.

JAN CRAWFORD: The committee is considering several key changes such as a shorter primary season, three months long instead of six. An earlier convention, sometime before mid-July. And far fewer debates, less than ten.

CHAIRMAN PRIEBUS: I don't think it's a good use of a nominee’s time and money to spend six months killing each other.

CHAIRMAN PRIEBUS: Your nominee becomes basically a duck on the pond until you get to the convention and we just can't have that for the good of the Party or the nominee.
