Didn’t Republican Rep.Liz Cheney LOSE her leadership spot for essentially saying the SAME THING?
This hit the Hill and Politicalwire several hours ago….
NO pushback from the other Republican Trump supporters?
Nothing from Trump himself?
No Rightwingnut media mentions?
I know the Senate IS different…
Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) said on Monday that he accepts the results of the 2020 election, and urged Republicans, including former President Donald Trump, to focus on the upcoming midterm where the party wants to win back control of Congress.
“I accept the results of the election. … 2020 is over to me, I’m ready to march on and hopefully take back the House and the Senate in 2022,” Graham told reporters in South Carolina.
Graham’s comments come as Trump has remained focused on the 2020 election, doubling down on his false claim that it was “stolen.” Trump’s legal team has lost dozens of challenges in court and GOP state officials along with former Attorney General William Barr have dismissed suggestions of widespread fraud, but that has done nothing to lower Trump’s rhetoric.
While Graham, who voted to certify the 2020 results in January, said he accepted the results, he added that he would endorse making changes to election laws heading into 2022, including tighter voter ID requirements.
While most Senate Republicans voted against challenges to Biden’s Electoral College victory in Congress earlier this year — when a pro-Trump mob attacked the Capitol — they also stayed silent for week after the November election as Trump tried to cast doubt on the results in key states.
Those false claims appear to have taken hold in a significant swath of GOP voters, according to polling.
Six in 10 Republicans believe Trump’s false claim that the election was “stolen” from him, according to a Reuters/Ipsos poll released last month. And a CBS News poll released over the weekend found that 67 percent of Republicans said that Biden wasn’t the legitimate winner of the 2020 election….
Graham has actually been saying THIS since November 6, 2020….
Graham has a history of working WITH Democrats in the past (He WILL again) , something the Republican’s have NOT done much until now…..
