Trump Campaign Issues Statement: ‘This Election Is Not Over’
Results in Georgia, Pennsylvania, and Nevada will be challenged
The Trump campaign issued a statement after the Decision Desk HQ declared Democratic nominee Joe Biden the winner of the 2020 election after giving him the battleground state of Pennsylvania.
Trump 2020 campaign general counsel, Matt Morgan, issued this statement:
“This election is not over."
“The false projection of Joe Biden as the winner is based on results in four states that are far from final.”
Results in Georgia, Pennsylvania, and Nevada will be challenged, according to Morgan.
The challenges are based on “irregularities” and alleged illegal ballots.
But he added that Arizona was too close to call with Trump moving to potentially win it.
“Georgia is headed for a recount,” Morgan said
“Where we are confident we will find ballots improperly harvested, and where President Trump will ultimately prevail.”
“There were many irregularities in Pennsylvania, including having election officials prevent our volunteer legal observers from having meaningful access to vote counting locations,” he continued.

“We prevailed in court on our challenge, but were deprived of valuable time and denied the transparency we are entitled to under state law.”
“In Nevada, there appear to be thousands of individuals who improperly cast mail ballots,” Morgan asserted.
“Finally, the President is on course to win Arizona outright, despite the irresponsible and erroneous ‘calling’ of the state for Biden by Fox News and the Associated Press.”
“Biden is relying on these states for his phony claim on the White House, but once the election is final, President Trump will be re-elected,” the statement concluded.
Meanwhile, The Department of Justice (DOJ) was called to investigate allegations of voter fraud in Nevada.
A legal team representing the NV Republican Party has sent a criminal referral to Attorney General Bill Barr, alleging to have uncovered "at least 3,062 instances of voter fraud."
“Our lawyers just sent a criminal referral to AG Barr regarding at least 3,062 instances of voter fraud,” Nevada GOP said in a statement.
“We expect that number to grow substantially."
