Election Campaign Trump Says ‘not Over’ As Biden Takes The Lead In Pennsylvania, Georgia

Published

President Donald Trump‘s campaign is defiantly insisting the race for the White House is not over, despite Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden inching closer to an Electoral College victory with leads in Pennsylvania and Georgia.

Matt Morgan, the Trump 2020 campaign’s general counsel, said in a statement that projections of a Biden victory are based upon “states that are far from final,” taking issue specifically with Georgia, Pennsylvania, Nevada, and Arizona.

“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,” Morgan said.

Outlining the issues in each state further, Morgan said:

  • Georgia is “headed for a recount,” campaign confident of “improperly harvested” ballots
  • “Many irregularities in Pennsylvania,” volunteer legal observers prevented “meaningful access to vote-counting locations”
  • In Nevada, “thousands of improperly cast ballots”
  • Trump “on course to win Arizona,” branded earlier calls of the state “irresponsible”

Newsweek has asked the Trump campaign for further detail to back up points within the statement.

Trump previously prematurely declared himself to be the winner, prompting a backlash from rivals as well as some supporters, and has insisted he will be if only votes he deems to have been cast legally are accounted for. He has said the dispute should be escalated to the U.S. Supreme Court.

Trump has also, without evidence, suggested the election is being stolen by Democrats. While some Republicans have backed aspects of his rhetoric, many have sidestepped or condemned his fraud claims. The validity of his remarks has been in dispute, with several news networks cutting away during live broadcasts of a press conference he held on Thursday evening.

Biden has stopped short of outright declaring victory, though has spoken of being confident that he will win once all the votes are in.
