But political experts say his compliments were less about the Sunshine State's ability to keep elections secure, and more about kowtowing to a political reality: he can't win the state if Republicans there feel like they can't vote by mail.

The Trump campaign and the Republican National Committee raised a combined record of $165 million in July, surpassing $1 billion for the election cycle, they announced Wednesday night.

A representative of Trump's campaign was not immediately available for comment.


Wallace, who moderated the third presidential debate between Trump and Hillary Clinton in 2016, said the first of three presidential debates is set to take place September 29 and the Commission on Presidential Debates will not make a change.

"Republicans have always supported efforts to make it easier for voters to cast their ballots", the GOP said in its lawsuit.

Nevada State Democratic Party Chair William McCurdy II slammed the GOP's lawsuit, calling it a "sham meant to intimidate the states from pursuing voting access expansions".


"Florida is an absolute must-have for Trump and everyone knows that, and he knows it as well", said Susan MacManus, a political science professor at the University of South Florida. "If Donald Trump were leading, instead of trailing in the polls, my guess is he wouldn't want it, so they'll have the debates". "I encourage all to request a Ballot & Vote by Mail!"

Among the party's biggest concerns are moves by states to send official ballots to all registered voters unsolicited, RNC chief counsel Justin Riemer said. On Monday, the president accused Nevada lawmakers of mounting an "illegal late night coup" that will make it more hard for Republicans to win the state in the upcoming election. "Using Covid to steal the state".
