I think (hope, pray & wish) this is the beginning of the end and a bunch more Senators will release similar types of statements before Thanksgiving.

  • Republican Sen. Pat Toomey congratulated President-elect Joe Biden on his victory just hours after a federal judge tossed a major Trump campaign lawsuit seeking to challenge the election results.
  • Toomey said in a statement that President Donald Trump "exhausted all plausible legal options" for winning the state's 20 electoral votes.
  • Toomey also accused Trump of attempting "to thwart the will of Michigan voters and select an illegitimate slate of electoral college electors."
  • "I congratulate President-elect Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris on their victory," Toomey said. "They are both dedicated public servants and I will be praying for them and for our country."

Jim Kolbe first ran for Congress in southern Arizona as a Republican in 1982, he lost by less than 3,000 votes. The future 11-term Republican congressman still remembers the painful moment when he called his Democratic opponent to concede — the step Trump is refusing to take.

"Failure to concede an election when the outcome is certain and beyond doubt undermines the very foundation of our democracy — the public confidence that elections decide who will guide the country or the state or the city," Kolbe observed.

"Pointless disputes over fictional 'fraud' only fuels disinformation, increases distrust in our constitutional form of government, and weakens trust in their leaders and the very process of holding elections."

Maryland Republican Gov. Larry Hogan slammed Trump's denial of the election results. After the President reiterated baseless voter fraud claims during a press conference about two weeks ago, Hogan declared, "No election or person is more important than our democracy."

Utah's Governor-elect Spencer Cox, also a Republican, urged the public to ignore Trump's rants, tweeting, "Please don't believe unfounded allegations that destroy trust in the process." "There's no evidence of mass voter fraud."

Georgia Republicans, including Lt. Gov. Geoff Duncan and former Sen. Saxby Chambliss, say they've seen no evidence of widespread fraud.
