Lindsey Graham, the Senate Judiciary Committee chair who last week was re-elected the senator for South Carolina, told Fox News on Monday: “Networks that do polling that’s way off — we’re ought to call them into Congress and ask them how they do it.
“Mitch McConnell [Senate Majority Leader] and I need to come up with an oversight of mail-in balloting. If we don’t do something about voting by mail, we are going to lose the ability to elect a Republican in this country.”
In a different interview with Fox News last week, Graham urged Donald Trump not to concede the presidential election to Joe Biden, despite every media outlet confirming the latter as the projected winner, warning: “If Republicans don’t challenge and change the US election system, there will never be another Republican president elected again.
Just a small handful of Republican lawmakers have publicly acknowledged Biden’s projected victory.
McConnell on Monday backed President Trump’s refusal to concede, telling the Senate that the defeated president was “100 per cent within his rights to look into allegations of irregularities.”
He said: “Let’s not have any lectures — no lectures — about how the president should immediately, cheerfully accept preliminary election results from the same characters who just spent four years refusing to accept the validity of the last election.”
