According to a press release, Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel has confirmed about 12,000 incident reports and over 400 affidavits filed concerning potential voter fraud.
McDaniel appeared on Fox Business to provide the brief update. The chairwoman shared that the campaign has issued nine lawsuits currently nationwide.
Fox News received widespread backlash from voters after declaring an early victory for Joe Biden in Arizona and how Democrats would add five seats to the House. Voters were further incensed after the news station cut away from a press briefing with White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany. Many former fans of Fox have turned to alternative media, most notably Newsmax.
In addition to the Georgia recount beginning next week, McDaniel asserted that Wisconsin will also hold a recount in the near future.
“Affidavits are evidence because these are people testifying under oath that they saw in Detroit ballots coming in, they couldn’t get a clear picture from where they were coming from,” she said. “But they saw many being fed into machines that they were forced to backdate or told to backdate ballots, as election workers who were working in Detroit.”
Thursday, The Tennessee Star learned during a Trump campaign briefing call that a Pennsylvania judge ruled that Secretary of State Kathy Boockvar didn’t have the authority to change the ballot deadlines. The decision may impact several thousand ballots, according to circulating reports.
McDaniel finished her remarks by emphasizing the need for continued patience as litigation continues.
“All of these things are very, very real and show us why we can’t just move on and close the book on this election. There’s a lot more to go [through] still,” she said.
