President Donald Trump’s campaign demanded on Monday night that the Republican National Committee immediately cancel all remaining primary debates and direct all of their resources to ensuring election “integrity.”

“The Republican National Committee should immediately cancel the upcoming debate in Miami and end all future debates in order to refocus its manpower and money on preventing Democrats’ efforts to steal the 2024 election,” said Trump campaign managers Susie Wiles and Chris LaCivita.

They continued, “Anything less, along with other reasons not to cancel, are an admission to the grassroots that their concerns about voter integrity are not taken seriously and national Republicans are more concerned about helping Joe Biden than ensuring a safe and secure election.”

The statement comes just a couple of days after the most recent fundraising quarter came to an end on September 30. Candidates have until October 15 to file their quarterly numbers.

Trump’s campaign made a similar statement after the most recent Republican primary debate late last month, which polling said was won by Florida Governor Ron DeSantis.

DeSantis, who is the only other Republican candidate consistently polling in the double digits, has since challenged Trump to a one-on-one debate.

“And I’d say the final thing, he’s had a lot to say about me on social media, really since 2022, right before the midterm election, he started attacking me when all Republicans were supposed to be united for a red wave,” DeSantis said. “He tried to attack me, and he’s been doing it a lot. You know, it’s one thing to do it behind a keyboard. Step up on stage, and do it to my face. I’m ready for it. He used to say I was a great governor. Now all of a sudden, you’re saying the opposite? Let’s have that discussion. And I’ll do it. We could do one-on-one. I was with Sean last night. Let’s do that and let’s give the American people the choice that they deserve.”
