The Trump Effect: A Florida Republican Who Lost Race by 59% Refuses to Concede

It has long been a tradition for politicians to concede their race once it was clear they had lost. Donald Trump broke that tradition along with many others. When Republicans lose, they are quick to follow the Trump roadmap and claim election fraud.

Jason Mariner, who ran for a congressional seat in Florida’s 20th district, has taken this to the extreme. Mariner refuses to concede his race even though he lost by nearly 60%.

Mariner, a former drug addict who has spent time in prison, told CBS, “Now they called the race — I did not win, so they say, but that does not mean that they lost either, it does not mean that we lost.”

The Republican continued, “We’ll also have some stuff coming out that we’ve recently discovered.” In typical Trump fashion, Mariner showed no evidence of irregularities in the election.

Democrat Sheila Cherfilus-McCormick was the winner of the mid-January race by a margin of 79%-20%. She seems neither surprised nor bothered by the Republican’s claims. She told CBS, “Well, this wouldn’t be my first time running against an opponent who is refusing to concede, so it’s not our first time, and at the end of the day, nothing can stop the motion.”
