During an interview on Fox News Sunday, House Minority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.) was confronted by anchor Chris Wallace on his support for a Texas lawsuit that would have thrown out the results of the presidential election in four key battleground states.
“You were talking about disenfranchising the 10 million Biden voters who supported [President-elect Joe Biden] in those four states,” Wallace said on “Fox News Sunday,” referring to the Texas lawsuit that was rejected late Friday.
“Do you feel comfortable throwing out millions of votes of your fellow Americans?” Wallace asked Scalise.
“Nobody wants any votes thrown out,” Scalise replied.
Wallace countered back: “That’s what the lawsuit would have done.”
The Louisiana Republican went on to note that the Supreme Court “said Texas didn’t have standing. They didn’t say they were going to address the merits,” speculating the court was unwilling to involve itself in such a politically charged issue.
“You’re not willing to recognize [Biden] as the president-elect, and you’re not willing to stop contesting the election?” Wallace asked, noting that the Electoral College is set to vote Monday.
“Joe Biden has been going through a transition with President Trump supporting him,” Scalise responded. “Let’s let this legal process play itself out.”
