Karl Rove Wants Republicans to Stop Accusing Dems of Electoral Fraud
Karl Rove knows something or two about how to win elections. He first helped George W. Bush win two terms as the Governor of Texas. He also ran the 2000 and 2004 campaigns that saw Bush win and then retain control of the presidency.
Rove also knows something about contested elections. The 2000 election, which Bush won over Al Gore is one of the most controversial in American history. The political adviser has a word of advice for Republicans who are challenging Biden’s likely 2020 win; stop saying that there has been voting fraud.
The election architect made the comments both on his personal blog and in a column for the Wall St. Journal. There is no stealing he warned. “There are suspicious partisans across the spectrum who believe widespread election fraud is possible.”
Rove continued, “Some hanky-panky always goes on, and there are already reports of poll watchers in Philadelphia not being allowed to do their jobs. But stealing hundreds of thousands of votes would require a conspiracy on the scale of a James Bond movie. That isn’t going to happen. Let’s repeat that: That isn’t going to happen.”
The political adviser was also complimentary of the Trump campaign. “He barnstormed the country, displaying the energy of a man half his age. Clearly enjoying himself, the president left it all out on the field. As this article went to press, Mr. Trump had fought his way into contention.”
