Ron Paul won’t be participating in the debate hosted by Newsmax and Donald Trump.

“The selection of a reality television personality to host a presidential debate that voters nationwide will be watching is beneath the office of the Presidency and flies in the face of that office’s history and dignity,” campaign chairman Jesse Benton said.

“Mr. Trump’s participation as moderator will distract from questions and answers concerning important issues such as the national economy, crushing federal government debt, the role of the federal government, foreign policy, and the like. To be sure, Mr. Trump’s participation will contribute to an unwanted circus-like atmosphere,” Benton continued.

Benton adds that Trump’s “record of toying with the serious decision of whether to compete for our nation’s highest office [is] a decision he appeared to make frivolously.” Jon Huntsman  is also avoiding the spectacle.
