It’s about faith in our electoral process

I was on Fox News @Night on Friday talking with Shannon Bream about election fraud and the continuing fight to make sure every legal vote counts and every illegal vote does not count.  You may be unaware that Texas State Senator Bryan Hughes, R-Mineola, has joined the Trump campaign’s legal team and is in Pennsylvania this week representing Donald J. Trump for President, Inc., in federal court against the Pennsylvania Secretary of State.

Shannon and I also discussed Joe Biden and the Democrats’ indication they will push a national lockdown and a mask mandate.  We also talked about my offer of $1 million reward to anyone who provides information to law enforcement that leads to an arrest and conviction on voter fraud.  Regardless of the outcome of the election, my goal is to make sure voters have faith in our electoral process and our democracy. Click here to watch.

I am outraged at the violence we are seeing from the left.  Yesterday, Trump supporters of all ages came together peacefully at a rally in Washington, D.C. They sang patriotic songs and made their voices heard regarding the election. Unlike what we have seen from the left for the last four years, there was no looting, no burning of buildings and no attacks on the police. Trump supporters – like all Americans – were exercising their right to speak out on what they believe without mobs and thugs intimidating them, attacking and assaulting them.  There are many videos online, including several in this news report.  Take a look.  In every one, the thugs appear to always outnumber their targets. They picked on older people and others that could not defend themselves. This should not be happening in America and we can’t allow these attacks on our democracy.  We certainly won’t tolerate it in Texas. Next session, I plan to address the need for increased penalties for those who commit assaults on others in retaliation for their exercise of free speech rights at rallies or protests.

I joined Sean Hannity on his program Thursday night to talk about election security – specifically the Dominion software that was soundly rejected for use in Texas last year because it was “error prone” and susceptible to fraudulent or unauthorized manipulation.  Despite the problems the experts in Texas saw, Dominion was used in many other states including several battlegrounds.  Watch it here.

I also talked about voter fraud on The Dana Loesch Show on Friday, which you can listen to here.

Please continue to keep our state and our nation in your prayers. Pray for the families who have lost loved ones to coronavirus and for our heroic health care workers. And, as always, keep our brave law enforcement officers in your prayers. May God bless you and your family, and may He continue to bless the greatest state of all—Texas.
