(PatrioticPost.com)- Over the weekend, Republican National Committee chair Ronna McDaniel appeared on Fox News with host Martha MacCallum to discuss the Pennsylvania Republican Senate primary race that remains too close to call.
MacCallum asked McDaniel about former President Donald Trump implying that the election was going to be stolen from his endorsed candidate, Dr. Mehmet Oz.
On Wednesday, Pennsylvania began a recount as required by law in races where candidate are separated by less than 0.5 points. Dr. Oz and McCormick are separated by less than 0.1 points.
Last week, in a post from his Truth Social account, the former president said that Dr. Oz should simply declare victory rather than waiting for the final count. Trump said declaring victory now would make it “much harder for them to cheat” using ballots they “just happened to find.”
MacCallum asked if McDaniel agreed with Trump’s suggestion that Dr. Oz should declare victory. Rather than answer, McDaniel pivoted to the election integrity bill Republican legislators passed earlier this year that Democrat Governor Tom Wolf vetoed.
She told MacCallum if that bill had become law, we wouldn’t be seeing the situation we’re seeing play out in Pennsylvania right now. She added that former President Trump and others are right that no excuse absentee voting shouldn’t be permitted. She said the influx of mail-in ballots in Pennsylvania shows “that systems are not ready for that.”
MacCallum asked McDaniel if she thought Trump would support Dave McCormick if he is declared the winner over Dr. Oz. The RNC chair said every Republican, including Trump, would be supporting the Republican nominee. She said Democrat Senate nominee John Fetterman is a “Democratic socialist,” adding that Republicans don’t want to see him in the US Senate.

The Gateway Pundit, however, was furious that McDaniel didn’t use her time to promote Dinesh D’Souza’s documentary “2000 Mules,” and blamed Fox News for McDaniel not bringing it up.
The rightwing site also blasted the RNC in general for not issuing any statement about the documentary.
