Tillis Must Condemn Trump’s Plan to Falsely Declare Victory, Undermine Election Result

Trump Threatens More Lawsuits to Block Vote Counting in Battleground States

Raleigh, N.C. - Yesterday, Axios reported that President Trump intends to falsely declare victory on election night if partial vote counts purport to show him leading. At a rally yesterday, Trump also threatened to “send in lawyers” in an attempt to stop the counting of legal votes and have ballots tossed out to ensure Republican leads in key battleground states. Trump and his campaign have repeatedly hinted that they do not believe Republicans can win without massive voter suppression efforts.

Piedmont Rising Executive Director Casey Wilkinson made the following statement:

“Thom Tillis can rarely be counted on to do the right thing, but standing silently by and allowing President Trump to undermine the election and block the counting of legal votes may be the lowest Tillis could possibly go. Tillis must oppose Trump prematurely claiming victory. He must decide whether he wants to be remembered for joining Trump in one last attempt at obscene, immoral voter suppression, or whether he will respect North Carolinians’ right to vote and stand up for a fair election.”
