Christie, Ramaswamy Claim RNC Threatened To Ban Them From Next Debate

RNC Presidential Debate Finally Scheduled

( – Senior advisors for the Trump Campaign, Chris LaCivita and Susie Wiles, issued a statement a few days after the second GOP primary debate calling on the Republican National Committee (RNC) to cancel the November debate in Miami and any future ones. They explained that the RNC should “refocus” its money and manpower on blocking Democratic-led efforts to steal the 2024 presidential election. At about the same time, hopefuls Chris Christie and Vivek Ramaswamy appear to have done their part to get banned from the debates — at least that’s what they claim.

On Monday, October 2, former Gov. Christie (R-NJ) and entrepreneur Ramaswamy posted statements on their respective X, formerly Twitter, pages promoting a faux debate on Fox News the following night. Christie took a shot at other Republican candidates in his post, writing that voters deserved to hear more from the GOP hopeful, “and unlike others, I’m not afraid to show up.” Ramaswamy’s post suggested that the GOP needed to engage more over topics of substance and less on “fake one-liners.”

However, both men apparently forgot they signed a pledge not to participate in any debates not sanctioned by the RNC “for the remainder of the [2024] campaign cycle” to qualify for the official ones.

On Tuesday, Christie and Ramaswamy returned to the X/Twitter accounts to lament that the RNC threatened to make good on its debate criteria and ban them from the next debate.

Christie wrote that American voters needed more information about the candidates, not less. He called the need for additional public debate and In-depth conversations the “bedrock of our Republic.” He also expressed concern about the RNC’s effort to throttle outside discussion among the party hopefuls.

Likewise, Ramaswamy posted a statement complaining about the RNC’s interference. He accused it of calling a “code-red on voters hearing [him] spar with Christie.” However, he pointed out that the committee was “perfectly fine” letting Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) debate Gov. Gavin Newsom (D-CA) on Fox News.

Fox News scheduled the match for November 30. Longtime host Sean Hannity is set to moderate the 90-minute Red vs. Blue State governor Debate.
