Krauthammer: 'The [GOP] candidates should quit while they're ahead'

Charles Krauthammer said Monday on "Special Report with Bret Baier"  that Republican presidential candidates' meeting to gain greater control over the remaining debate format is "pointless."

Advisers from at least 11 GOP presidential campaigns met Sunday to outline what they want out of the remaining debates following last week's controversial CNBC debate.

"The Republican candidates should quit while they're ahead," the syndicated columnist and Fox News contributor said. "The debate about the debate is over and they crushed the media."

"The general consensus, including in the liberal media, is that it was an awful debate run by disrespectful and kind of useless moderators, who clearly showed the world that there's a liberal bias, so the GOP won and, actually, came out of the debate looking good as a group. At this point, I think to continue to beat the horse is kind of pointless," Krauthammer said.
