KANSAS DEMOCRATIC PARTY’S STATEMENT ON ROGER MARSHALL, TRACY MANN, JAKE LATURNER, AND RON ESTES CONTESTING PRESIDENT-ELECT BIDEN’S ELECTION VICTORY


Topeka, KS — On Saturday, January 2nd, Roger Marshall announced that he will join Ted Cruz and 11 other Senate Republicans in backing an effort to challenge the 2020 presidential election results when Congress meets next week to certify the Electoral College results. In addition, incoming representatives Tracy Mann, Jake LaTurner and Ron Estes have also signed onto this measure to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election. In response, the Kansas Democratic Party released the following statement.

“Roger Marshall and the Republican House delegation from Kansas are attempting to subvert the will of the American voters by trying to delegitimize the results of the 2020 presidential election. Let us be clear: this is not just an erratic and dangerous attack on our nation’s democracy, but also a clear attempt to overturn the result of a free and fair presidential election. Every state in the country has already certified the results of the 2020 election, some of them after full recounts — and dozens of court decisions have upheld the validity of Joe Biden’s victory on November 3rd.

We have learned this past weekend that Donald Trump pressured Georgia’s Secretary of State to recalculate the results of their election in his favor and overturn his defeat in the state. Roger Marshall, Tracy Mann, Jake LaTurner and Ron Estes are aiding the President in his mission to illegally steal the 2020 presidential election and delegitimizing the votes of over 81 million Americans who have cast their vote for President-elect Joe Biden. It’s past time to stop with these baseless allegations and move forward with a peaceful transition of power. Kansans deserve better from their elected officials.”
