Trump endorses ‘big lie’ proponents for state election posts


Associated Press

NEW YORK (AP) — Former President Donald Trump is aiming to exert his influence at all levels of the Republican Party as he considers another presidential run.

Trump is throwing his support behind candidates who have not only perpetuated the lie that the 2020 election was stolen, but in some cases also actively tried to overturn the results. Voting experts fear that if those candidates end up winning, they could undermine the integrity of future elections and use their powers to skew the results.
