Appearing with Maria Bartiromo, GOP Leader Kevin McCarthy gave his thoughts on the state of the Presidential election. “Well, what we need in the presidential race is to make sure every legal vote is counted, every recount is completed, and every legal challenge should be heard, then, and only then, that America will decide who won the race,” McCarthy said.
“Remember, Maria, we are less than 21,000 votes away where the House, we could win the majority,” he continued “There are a number of seats, 10 seats that are still sitting out there. Republicans are leading in three. They haven’t called any of those. So, why would you call the presidential race first?”
“Remember the framework. I was on your show just the Sunday before the election. They said, in the House, Republicans would lose 15 to 20 seats. Every pollster said that, Speaker Pelosi and Steny Hoyer. They also said we would lose the Senate and we would lose legislatures as well. What happened? We didn’t lose one incumbent. We won every seat, except one open. We won 28 of the 29 most competitive seats that Nate Silver laid out there. We are gaining and less than 21,000 votes away.”
Every legal vote must be counted.
Every recount must be completed.
Every legal challenge must be heard.
