The Republican National Committee released details of an internal review on Monday.

The study was completed following the November election and resulted in more than 200 recommendations for the next election cycle.

Among them, a shorter primary season, better use of technology, greater outreach to young people and minorities, an earlier convention and fewer primary debates.

“In 2008 and 2012, the debates multiplied and were out of the control of the RNC. This cycle, there were 20 total debates the first, eight months before the Iowa Caucuses. The report contrasts this with 1980, when there were six debates and 1988, there were seven,” Chairman Reince Priebus said.

The RNC says it’ll get to work on the changes in hopes of re-booting in time for 2016.
