Gov. Wolf: PA had a Fair and Secure Election, Congressional GOP Efforts to Overturn the Results are Disgraceful

With Congress preparing to count Electoral College votes, Governor Tom Wolf was joined by Secretary of State Kathy Boockvar and Philadelphia City Commissioner Al Schmidt to emphasize that Pennsylvania had a free, fair and secure election. All efforts by Congressional Republicans to overthrow the election results and subvert the will of the voters are disgraceful and must be rejected.

"Republican members of the Pennsylvania Congressional delegation plan to object to the counting of Pennsylvania's electoral votes by claiming the election was compromised, and that our electoral votes are suspect," said Gov. Wolf. "This is an outrageous lie, and they are undermining our democracy by recklessly repeating that lie to deceive the American people."

"Today, these Republican Congressman have a choice. They can stand with our country and uphold our constitution, or they can stand by a single defeated politician pushing baseless claims in an attempt to overturn an election."
