The 2024 elections are more than a year away, but former President Donald Trump's reelection campaign is already deploying disinformation about voter fraud and claiming that Democrats are trying "steal" the election, setting the stage for players in the right-wing cottage industry known as the "election denial industrial complex" to once again profit from riling up voters and casting doubt on any result that is not favorable to Trump and the GOP.

Senior advisers to the Trump campaign posted a statement to social media on Monday calling on the Republican National Committee (RNC) to essentially shut down the ongoing GOP primary race so the party can preemptively nominate Trump and "refocus its manpower and money on preventing Democrats' efforts to steal the 2024 election."

The RNC should cancel all the upcoming debates between Republican presidential contenders, the advisers said, including next month's debate in Miami, Florida, which Trump already announced he would not attend. Holding further debates, they said, would be "an admission to the grassroots that their concerns about voter integrity are not taken seriously" and that the Republican Party will not work to ensure "a safe and secure election."
