Republican presidential campaigns are planning to meet Sunday in Washington D.C. to discuss their frustrations with the primary debate process, NBC News has confirmed.
But the meeting will not include the Republican National Committee, which has worked with media organizations to help plan the debates.
The weekend gathering was first reported by POLITICO.
Campaigns have expressed unhappiness with the process throughout the cycle, but objections grew after CNBC's Wednesday debate, which numerous candidates openly panned as disorganized and engineered to be contentious.
RNC head Reince Priebus tweeted his discontent Wednesday night.
But the 2016 campaigns are now moving to make their own demands instead of working through the RNC.
