Democrats are celebrating the unofficial win of Joe Biden as if it was official (certified by the same media that certified Donald Trump a Russian asset until they found out he wasn’t one). But state canvassing boards determine official election results and vote totals—period. Then they issue election certificates.
President Trump’s supporters are not giving up yet. Following are comments from key players on Sunday regarding the fight ahead.
South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem set George Stephanopolous straight when he asked if she’s prepared to work with President-elect Biden. “This is a premature conversation because we have not finished counting votes. There are states that have not been called,” Noem said.
Rudy Giuliani summarizes evidence of election fraud and plans for each state:
Senator Lindsey Graham said, “The media doesn’t decide who becomes President. If they did, you would never have a Republican President.” He goes on to explain the Senate will stop any radical left-wing legislation attempts:
Senator Ted Cruz said, “The media does not get to select our President. The American people get to elect our President. And at this point, we’ve got numerous states that are very closely and vigorously contested.”
House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy said, “We are less than 21,000 votes away from where in the House we could win the majority. There are a number of seats—ten seats—that are still sitting out there. Republicans are leading in three. They haven’t called any of those. So why would you call the Presidential race first?”
Trump’s legal cases have a deadline of Dec. 8. Fox9 News in Minnesota spoke to Hamline Political Science Professor David Schultz and reports:
“If there is any litigation going on, there are any legal challenges going on, the Supreme Court wants this resolved by Dec. 8,” said Schultz. “So that process for going to the Electoral college on Dec. 14 will proceed as normal.”
The Electoral College votes on Dec. 14. The next key deadline will be Jan. 6—when Congress takes additional action if needed.
“If a member of the Senate and a member of the House wish to protest and say we think something is wrong with the Electoral College vote, they can come forward at that date,” Schultz told Fox9 News.
