BOULDER, Colo. — Immediately after the conclusion of the third Republican primary debate, the chair of the National Republican Committee bashed CNBC.

“I think it was one gotcha question, one personal low blow after the other,” Reince Priebus told the press gathered in the spin room. “It’s almost like they tried to design a Rubik’s cube for every question.”

“I’m proud of our candidates for pretty much sticking together,” he added, before saying: “I’m very disappointed in the moderators and I’m very disappointed in CNBC.”

Priebus immediately left the spin room without taking questions.
