Update from Brian Burch of Catholic Vote

by Steve Ray on November 7, 2020

CatholicVote President Brian Burch issued the following statement following today’s media declaration of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris as the winners of the 2020 election:

“This election is far from over, and no American should accept the outcome until states certify their results, and all legal challenges have been resolved. The American people are entitled to the assurance that every legal vote was counted, and that irregularities did not have any impact on the election outcome.

“Premature declarations of a winner only serve to inflame the already deep divisions within our country. The media does not decide the winner of our elections. We have laws and courts for a reason. It’s important to note that multiple states are still counting ballots, with recounts likely. In addition, the courts are now reviewing several lawsuits, with more expected in the coming days. The outcome of these cases could alter the vote tallies in several states.

“We call on county officials in key contested states to immediately publish the full voter roll so that observers can resolve questions related to ballot and voter irregularities. These voter rolls are always made public months after the election, yet today remain hidden. Failure to make them available now is shielding the public from critical information to which they are entitled.”

Statement from President Donald Trump

Statement from President Donald J. Trump

“We all know why Joe Biden is rushing to falsely pose as the winner, and why his media allies are trying so hard to help him: they don’t want the truth to be exposed. The simple fact is this election is far from over. Joe Biden has not been certified as the winner of any states, let alone any of the highly contested states headed for mandatory recounts, or states where our campaign has valid and legitimate legal challenges that could determine the ultimate victor. In Pennsylvania, for example, our legal observers were not permitted meaningful access to watch the counting process.  Legal votes decide who is president, not the news media.

Beginning Monday, our campaign will start prosecuting our case in court to ensure election laws are fully upheld and the rightful winner is seated. The American People are entitled to an honest election: that means counting all legal ballots, and not counting any illegal ballots. This is the only way to ensure the public has full confidence in our election. It remains shocking that the Biden campaign refuses to agree with this basic principle and wants ballots counted even if they are fraudulent, manufactured, or cast by ineligible or deceased voters. Only a party engaged in wrongdoing would unlawfully keep observers out of the count room – and then fight in court to block their access.

“So what is Biden hiding? I will not rest until the American People have the honest vote count they deserve and that Democracy demands.”
