WATCH: Rick Scott Says Republicans Will Win In 2022 By Not Talking About 2020

It’s been a full year since the 2020 election was called for Joe Biden, but not everyone is ready to let it go. Donald Trump, for instance, is still releasing statements claiming that he won. Many of his supporters, both in government and media, are still pushing the Big Lie. However, one Republican says that dropping the subject is key to winning in 2022.

Senator Rick Scott (R-FL) appeared on Meet The Press Sunday, where he was asked about one of the most recent statements released by Donald Trump. In it, Trump declares that January 6th was not an attempted insurrection, but a protest, and that November 3rd — the presidential election that he lost — was the real “insurrection.”

Scott is not interested in answering that question, though. Pressuring Republicans to state clearly whether they believe the election was ‘stolen’ has been a regular item on the press agenda since January, and dodging the question has become a standardized response.

“Democrats are focused on Donald Trump. Americans are focused on the future…we’re gonna win in ’22 because we’re going to talk about issues. We’re not going to talk about the last election.”

If GOP wins in 2022 do rely on dropping the subject of the 2020 election, Republicans may be in for a hard road. Trump is endorsing primary challengers against those Republicans he feels weren’t loyal enough to him through the election and his second impeachment, and has already declared that his base won’t vote in 2022 or 2024 unless something is done about the fraud that he claims (despite all evidence) resulted in his loss.
