Fallout from this week's Republican presidential debate... The Republican Party is suspending it's relationship with NBC News.

FOX News Radio's Jared Halpern has more from Washington:

The Republican National Committee is suspending its partnership with NBC News for a February debate scheduled for Houston.

In a letter to the network's news chief, RNC Chairman Reince Priebus says the decision comes because CNBC conducted a debate in bad faith; adding while debates are meant to include tough questions CNBC's moderators engaged in a series of gotcha questions in a mean-spirited tone designed to embarrass Republican candidates.

Preibus says the RNC still intends to have a debate in February.

"This is a disappointing development. However, along with our debate broadcast partners at Telemundo we will work in good faith to resolve this matter with the Republican Party."
