Sen. Rounds pushes GOP to get 'louder' on false Trump claims

PIERRE, S.D. (AP) — U.S. Sen. Mike Rounds of South Dakota has been telling people for the last year that the 2020 election was fair, but this week he did something few other Republicans have dared — tell a national audience that.

Now he wishes more Republicans would join him.

Rounds, who is in his second Senate term, has been telling local newspapers, radio shows and Rotary clubs in South Dakota that he checked out the allegations of election fraud made by former President Donald Trump and, while there were some “irregularities,” they all came up empty of anything that could counter the truth that Trump lost. So, when ABC News' “This Week” asked the senator to appear on its Sunday show to discuss the Jan. 6, 2020, attack on the Capitol, Rounds said his decision was simple: “Well, of course I will.”

But the backlash from speaking was swift. Rounds said he wasn't looking to pick a fight with Trump, but that's exactly what happened. The former president called Rounds a “jerk” in a statement. Rounds stood by what he said, and argued there are many more Republicans like him — and they need to speak up.

They first have to unstick their lips from Trump's buttocks.

2. The GOP is beyond redemption.



Sorry Senator, any efforts to decriminalize your party are futile.

3. GQP have no further use for shithole . ......

Watch mcturtle and many of his comrades go against him. The GQP have placed what they need to steal the election by voter suppression, gerrymandering and spouting all type of lies with the coporate media's help.

My personal opinion, I think it's gonna backfire.
