“We must defeat those who will lie, cheat, steal, and win elections at any cost,” wrote: “Member-elect Bob Well-who won his own game in Central Virginia, but in support of President Trump The result of hard work and challenge the country.
Their statement is part of the skepticism that Republicans have cast in the election since Trump’s election of President Joe Biden (Joe Biden). In the whole area, some failures The candidate yelled “stop theft”
Among the five current Republican congressmen in Virginia and Maryland, only go out Representative Denver Riegman (R. Va.) said he accepts Biden’s victory.
Representatives Andy Harris (R-MD.), Morgan H. Griffith (R-VA), and Rob Wittman (R-VA) did not make any comments on whether they recognized Biden as president-elect. In response, Ben Klein (R-Va.), the spokesperson for the House of Representatives, said he could not be reached.
Four people all support Trump’s legal challenge in public statements, in different level.
Harris said on Facebook that he was not accusing fraud, but “the number of secret votes swayed in the states, which means we will have to wait until the courts to reveal the truth. When the thorough investigation is over, we know Only legitimate votes are counted, then we will know who the real winner is, and then we need to move on.”
Riggleman was defeated by Good at a nomination conference this summer. He said that he believes that any fraudulent voting should be eradicated. But he called the allegations of widespread illegal voting an unfounded conspiracy theory.
He said: “When you see the total number of votes like this, and you have these inconclusive theories, but in fact there is no basis, it will begin to deprive these lawsuits of moral authority,” he said.
“You are telling me that these people’s plans are so delicate that they can determine Joe Biden’s election, but go ahead and let Republicans get multiple seats in the House of Representatives and maintain control of the Senate? This is an absurd idea.”
National election officials said There is no evidence of major voter fraud in the election, andEvery legal challenge of the Trump administration has been rejected.
But even as Biden’s momentum grew, the president refused to give in. Many Republicans support his attacks on the electoral system and his efforts to overthrow elections in major countries.
Like Riggleman, Maryland Governor Larry Hogan (R) is an exception. He was one of the first Republicans to acknowledge Biden’s victory and condemned efforts to undermine its legitimacy.
On the contrary, Griffith, Encourage people on Facebook to donate to Trump’s “Official Election Defense Fund”, 50% of Trump’s campaign donations are used for debt refunds, and the rest is used to “re-account”.
Cline wrote on Facebook that he and other lawmakers wrote to Attorney General William P. Barr that “the “substantial allegations” of possible voter fraud against him were “appropriate “… In such close competitions, all of us should insist that every legal vote be counted before the winner is announced.”
Wittman said the court should hear Trump’s case. He also said: “We must ensure the integrity of the election and must comply with the law… Every legal vote should be counted, and every unqualified vote should not be counted.”
Tucker Martin (Tucker Martin), then director of communications at the time-Virginia Governor Bob McDonald (R) said that Republicans refused to admit that Biden’s victory was a rejection of “real life.” As for Republicans to accept election results in their race, rather than in Trump’s election, he said: “Election results are not a buffet. You can’t choose people you like, not people you don’t like. “
Because MacDonald was elected in 2009, Martin said the party’s leader risked damage to his brand by questioning the election results. Republicans did not win the Virginia statewide game.
He said: “When you ask for fraud with a large profit, both things you do are detrimental to future prospects.” “One, you weaken the trust of voters in the process, and therefore weaken their Interest in participating in the process. Second, you also refuse to adapt to the political realities of Virginia, so you want you to be competitive.
Martin said: “The time you spend every day saying that the last election was stolen is the day you lost preparation for the next election.”
Although some candidates refused to admit it, others did, but continued to claim voter fraud, including Maryland Republican Kimberly Klacik (Kimberly Klacik), who lost to Rep. Kweisi Mfume (D).
After Trump promoted a viral campaign advertisement, she raised millions of dollars for the campaign and said that she might use the remaining campaign funds to investigate the results of her own games, while also supporting Trump’s efforts.
She said in a video posted to Facebook on Wednesday night: “I will concentrate on TV and hope President Trump will win.” “Otherwise, even after the incident, I will still support him 100%.”
On Monday, another far-sighted candidate, Virginia Republican John Collick (John Collick) gave up his concession to long-time Congressman Rob C. “Bobby” Scott (D). This is Republican-driven “Irregular” appeared.Anantatmula, who challenged Connolly, stated on Facebook that she would not admit defeat until [Supreme Court] Decisions on national violations and large-scale voter fraud. “
Up to now, there is no such case in the High Court.
Virginia Republican Daniel Gade admitted to Senator Mark R. Warner the morning after the election that he said he knew the frustration of losing a candidate-but he said it should Accept the reality.
On Election Day, the Associated Press called the Warner campaign at 7 pm after the polls ended, and Gade said this angered him. He took the lead with a lead of at least 200,000 votes. Then there are absentee ballots. He eventually lost about one million votes.
Gad said that he woke up the next day and accepted the true facts he knew: this was not a conspiracy.Instead, more Democrats voted in advance by mail and These ballots are reported last.
Gade said: “Pretending that our election is illegal is a dangerous idea.” “After the candidate has clearly lost, it is inappropriate for the candidate or his supporters to sabotage the results of the election.”
