Washington post It was reported in January that Trump desperately begged Ravensberg to “find” more than 11,000 votes in his favor, which would change the country for him. According to reports, in a January phone call, Trump threatened Ravensberg because he refused to help overturn the election results and dismissed the president’s false statement that “we have won the country.”
According to reports, Ravensberg told Trump that “the data you have is wrong.” After that, the president lashed out at Ravensberg, calling him incompetent and weak.
Trump has continued to attack any and all Republicans who he believes helped “steal” his election. In a statement issued by Trump’s rescue of the US PAC on Saturday, the former president complained: “The feeling of false elections is now stronger than ever. Look at the recent 35,000 votes in the great state of Georgia. Story, look at what happened in Arizona, New Hampshire, Pennsylvania and other states.”
Heath admitted on Sunday that persistent and unsubstantiated claims about widespread voter fraud could hurt Republicans because many in the party base are increasingly discouraged by a full vote. But Heath said he has the ability to rebuild confidence among Republican voters and bring them into the polls to overthrow Ravensberg.
“Absolutely. If people think their votes are not counted, they will not vote,” Heath told Fox News. “This is exactly why I campaigned. We must restore the integrity and confidence of the voters.”
