McEnany Projects Trump Will Beat Biden by 40,000 Votes in Pennsylvania
WH press secretary predicts win for President
White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany has projected that President Trump will defeat Joe Biden by around 40,000 votes in Pennsylvania.
McEnany's prediction comes as the Trump campaign launched a legal battle challenging the irregularities and the handling of ballots in the state.
McEnany echoed Rudy Giuliani, who vowed to "expose the corruption of the Democratic Party" by lifting the lid on alleged "voter fraud" in Pennsylvania.
"Philadelphia, in particular, has a history of very peculiar results," McEnany told Fox News.
"You had 59 different precincts where Mitt Romney got precisely zero votes [in 2012], which is very unlikely and curious indeed."
"You had a Democrat individual who was charged for -- in 2014, 2015, and in 2016 -- stuffing the ballot box with fraudulent ballots."
"So we want to be on alert," she added.
McEnany claimed that poll watchers were forced to stand several feet away, which drastically limited their ability to ensure accuracy.
"That's what this lawsuit is all about, free, transparent, observation of what's going on in Philadelphia," she said.
"Right now, we are not being given that."
Pennsylvania and North Carolina were permitted to extend the deadline for when officials received ballots.

This could mean the official tallies won't be known until Friday and Nov. 12 for North Carolina.
The Trump campaign is seeking to overturn the 4-4 decision, allowing Pennsylvania to keep its ballot extension.
But McEnany said the Trump campaign is confident the president will win Pennsylvania by at least 40,000 votes.
The President needs roughly 57.7% of the 600,000 outstanding votes, which McEnany believes will give him a win "by about 30,000 votes."
The Trump campaign is now suing Pennsylvania to prevent the counting of mail-in ballots.
Although Trump is currently leading in the state, uncounted votes could give the state to Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden.
"Voter fraud is one of the biggest [problems],” Giuliani said.
"But we’re not going to let them get away with it."
"They’re not going to steal this election."
