Re-election for President Donald Trump will come down to three states, according to White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany. As lawyers are being sent to Pennsylvania to challenge the handling of ballots there, the Trump campaign maintains that they will still win in Pennsylvania by 40,000 votes or more.
McEnany echoed the sentiment of Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani, claiming that “massive cheating” was taking place in the state. “Philadelphia, in particular, has a history of very peculiar results,” McEnany told Fox News’ Bret Baier and Martha MacCallum.
“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,” she claimed. “So we want to be on alert.”
Pennsylvania and North Carolina extended their deadlines for when officials can receive ballots, which means we may not know the final tallies from Pennsylvania until Friday and North Carolina until Nov. 12. The Trump campaign is looking to overturn a 4-4 decision allowing Pennsylvania to maintain its ballot extension.
The Trump campaign has also filed lawsuits in Michigan, Wisconsin and Georgia. “That’s why we are doing the recounts in Wisconsin, why we’re looking at Michigan as well having the poll observers,” McEnany said. “We’re looking, but we believe the path runs through Arizona, Pennsylvania, keeping Georgia, which we’re already in the lead there.”
The counting in Arizona continues as President Trump has now closed the gap to under a 70,000 vote difference between himself and Biden with less than 300,000 ballots still remaining to be counted in the Grand Canyon State.
