Over the last year and a half, Donald Trump has claimed that he actually won the 2020 election. Most Republican lawmakers know that the claims are untrue. Still, plenty of Trump supporters are buying into the fable.
Now, elected officials are incorporating Trump’s big lie into their campaign ads. In a new spot, Alabama Governor Kay Ivey claimed that Liberals and the fake news media stole the election from the 45th President.
In the ad, the Republican lawmaker began, “The fake news, Big Tech, and blue-state liberals stole the election from President Trump.”
Ivey continued, “But here in Alabama, we are making sure that never happens. We have not, and will not, send absentee ballots to everyone and their brother. We banned corrupt curbside voting, and our results will always be audited. I’m Kay Ivey. The Left is probably offended. So be it. As long as I’m governor, we’re going to protect your vote.”
When reached for comment by Alabama Local News, Ivey’s team doubled down on the ad. Campaign Manager William Cardiff responded, “Gov. Ivey stood with Trump and fought to secure our elections. Here in Alabama, we didn’t have the issues they had in other states. Gov. Ivey will continue to stand strong and make sure that our elections are secure so that what happened to President Trump in other states will never happen in any election in Alabama.”
