Larry Elder sets up voter fraud website ahead of governor recall vote
Larry Elder echoes Trump’s false voter fraud claims as Gavin Newsom’s polling advantage grows

Larry Elder, the conservative radio host and leading GOP candidate in the race to replace 加利福尼亚州 州长 Gavin Newsom should the effort to 回忆 him find success, has set up a voter fraud website, after echoing 唐纳德·特朗普’s false narrative about “stolen” elections.

This week the 69-year-old would not commit to accepting the results of Tuesday’s vote should he lose.

Asked repeatedly on Monday by MSNBC’s Jacob Soboroff whether he’d accept the results win or lose, Mr Elder refused to say yes or no and instead repeatedly asserted that both parties should endeavour to make sure that Tuesday’s election was fair.

“I think we all ought to be looking at election integrity,” Mr Elder said. “No matter whether you’re a Democrat, 独立的, or Republican, let’s all make sure that the election is a fair election.”

His comments, while not bomb-throwing in nature, nevertheless leave open the possibility that Mr Elder will not accept the official results of the election set to conclude tonight and could instead contest the outcome in a manner similar to former President Trump’s persistent falsehoods about the 2020 presidential race.

And they come as his campaign has launched a website encouraging supporters to report supposed instances of election fraud; Mr Trump’s legal team relied almost entirely on sworn affidavits from their own supporters while attempting to challenge the results of the 2020 election in courts around the nation in the days after his defeat.

“Election integrity should be a universally accepted American ideal. 很遗憾, there are instances where such integrity is called into question. If you have experienced any irregularities, interference, or intimidation while voting, please let us know by filling out the short form below. 谢谢,” reads a note on Mr Elder’s website.

California’s recall election has looked to be a looming victory for Democrats as polls have shown the race trending away from Mr Elder and the GOP’s favour in recent weeks amid a massive surge of national Democratic support for Mr Newsom.

Nationally-known Democratic Party figures including former President Barack Obama, 总统 乔拜登, 副总统 卡马拉哈里斯 and Senator Bernie Sanders have all publicly chipped in to support Mr Newsom’s campaign in the final weeks as their party seeks to retain control of the state’s highest office.
