Romney Tips The Balance In Senate Breaks With Republicans On Vote-By-Mail
Senator Mitt Romney (R-UT) is doing everything he can to get rid of President Trump and he is tipping the balance in the Senate over cheat by mail. Romney has endorsed House Speaker Pelosi and Democrats plan to pass vote by mail.
“In my state, I’ll bet 90% of us vote by mail. It works very very well and it’s a very Republican state,” Romney told reporters on Capitol Hill when asked about the president’s comments, according to ABC News.
Romney’s endorsement of “cheat by mail” comes after President Trump threatened to withhold federal funding from Michigan over its mass mailing of absentee ballot applications for their upcoming elections in August and November.
“Michigan sends absentee ballots to 7.7 million people ahead of Primaries and the General Election. This was done illegally and without authorization by a rogue Secretary of State. I will ask to hold up funding to Michigan if they want to go down this Voter Fraud path!” the president tweeted.
Nevada Governor Steve Sisolak (D) also responded to the President’s threat calling it “inappropriate and outrageous.”
“Nevada is widely recognized as being a national leader in election administration, and we will continue to support the safest, most accessible election possible under these unprecedented circumstances,” Sisolak wrote on social media.
“For the President to threaten federal funding in the midst of a pandemic over a state exercising its authority to run elections in a safe and legal manner is inappropriate and outrageous,” he added.
Democrats are trying to use the coronavirus pandemic to take over national elections and nationalize vote by mail however, recent pubic health data has shown voting does not increase coronavirus cases.
Breitbart News has reported:
Recent data has not shown a compelling public health justification for vote-by-mail. Wisconsin is one of the only U.S. states that held its primary election with in-person voting after the nation’s coronavirus lockdowns began. Only a few dozen people at maximum were confirmed to have contracted the virus after participating either as voters or poll workers, and none of those cases were fatal. Out of the 413,000 participants, that equals an infection rate below two-hundredths of one percent. Just days later, South Korea held national elections which did not result in any new coronavirus cases.
If we can all wait in line at the grocery store, we can all safely wait in line to vote.
