[Reuters]–On the 26th, Governor Abbott of the Southern Texas State of the United States insisted on the legitimacy of an “audit” to verify the results of the 2020 presidential elections scheduled in four counties in the state.
In a public letter to Mr. Abbott last week, former President Trump called for support for a bill (HB 16) being deliberated in the Texas State Parliament. The bill will allow county heads of each party to call for a review of the 20-year election results.
After Mr. Trump issued a public letter, the Secretary of State’s office ordered audits in the four most populous counties (Dallas, Harris, Tarant, and Colin). Mr. Byden has won the general vote in Harris, Dallas and Tarant counties. Meanwhile, Mr. Trump has won in Colin County.
In an interview with FOX News, Mr. Abbott said he didn’t think the audit was a waste of tax. Mr. Trump has defeated Mr. Byden in Texas.
“The government is auditing every aspect,” said Abbott. “Why do people worry about auditing elections, which is the basis of democracy, when we audit everything?” Said.
In Arizona, the results of an independent verification of the results of the presidential election by the Republican Party were announced on the 24th, but the result of Mr. Byden’s victory was not overturned.
