South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham says he thinks debates are going to start hurting the candidates soon if the debate structure isn't changed.
"I like Reince Priebus, he has brought the party back. He's a good man. It is time to reevaluate, yes, this debate process needs to change," Graham, who so far has been relegated to the undercard Republican debates, told Boston Herald Radio on Thursday morning.
"Have a more serious discussion. Test each other, so we can win this election. You're dead right. This thing is beginning to hurt us."
Graham wants a "random draw" where debates happen in groups of six instead of the current debate structure. Conservatives overwhelmingly panned the CNBC debate that took place Wednesday evening for what they say was unfair and biased questioning.
Graham noted the small difference in the polls between many of the candidates, sometimes only one or two percentage points.
"I think we're setting ourselves up for a fall," said Graham, again pushing for changing the debate structure. "We need to do it differently."
He added, "If they don't make this correction we're gonna wind up hurting ourselves in 2016."
