Larry Elder, a GOP contender for president in 2024, will now file a lawsuit against the Republican National Committee (RNC) for what he claims is their last-minute attempt to prevent him from participating in the debate, despite the fact that, according to Elder, he met all of the standards to participate. The revelation was revealed in a recent press release sent out by the Elder campaign.

Elder has specific reservations about the polling conditions set by the Republican National Committee for the first presidential debate.

“I said from the beginning that it appeared the rules of the game were rigged. Little did we know just how rigged it is. For some reason, the establishment leaders at the RNC are afraid of having my voice on the Debate stage. Just as I had to fight to successfully be on the ballot in the California Recall election, I will fight to be on that Debate stage because I fully met all of the requirements to do so.” Elder said concerning the issue.

Larry Elder’s campaign reportedly sent a comprehensive qualification packet to David Bossie, the RNC’s director of debates, in advance of the August 21, 2023, 9 p.m. EST deadline for qualification for the first Republican National Committee debate.

Elder was denied however due to what the RNC claimed was its improper use of a Rasmussen poll. According to the Elder campaign the RNC claimed the poll was invalid because of the firm’s close ties to former President Trump.

The Elder campaign is contemplating a legal challenge to the Debate qualifying requirements, particularly the criteria governing precisely which surveys qualify a candidate for the debate, which they believe is too ambiguous.

On the day of the debate, at 11 a.m. Milwaukee time, he will have a press conference in front of the Fiserv Forum at 1111 Vel R. Phillips Avenue in Milwaukee, Wisconsin to address the troubling turn of events.
