Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers supports Trump’s recounts, lawsuits

Rep Cathy McMorris Rodgers

President Trump is refusing to concede to President-elect Joe Biden, whose lead continues to grow in swing states like Pennsylvania and Georgia.

This afternoon, 4 News Now reached out to Congresswoman Cathy McMorris Rodgers to see what she thinks of the President’s claims of voter fraud, and whether he should concede the race at this point.

“There’s been enough stories—whether its in Michigan, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, or Arizona—where there’s stories that are concerning enough to me that I support the President’s effort to make sure every legal vote is counted, but also where there are disputes that he can pursue that,” said McMorris Rodgers. “He can pursue it legally and that’s what we’re working through right now.”

McMorris Rodgers did not specify which stories she was referring to.

We then asked if Trump should congratulate Biden on his victory once all options are exhausted.

“These states—I was looking at the list today—there’s different dates as to when the states have to certify those elections, so we’ll just keep working through the process,” McMorris Rodgers responded.
