Trump claims results ‘rigged’ in Pennsylvania primary as Dr Oz fails to secure a win

Trump claims results ‘rigged’ in Pennsylvania primary as Dr Oz fails to secure a win
Comes as Dave McCormick has a steady lead in mail-in ballots and the race remains too close to call.

Former president 唐纳德·特朗普 is once again crying that election results in Pennsylvania are rigged and complaining about mail-in ballots as Dr Mehmet Oz has failed to clinch the nomination in the Senate primary despite Mr Trump’s endorsement.

The former president posted on his social media platform Truth Social that there were irregularities with mail-in ballots.

“Here we go again! In Pennsylvania, they are unable to count the Mail-In Ballots,“ 他写了. “Our Country should go to paper ballots with same day voting. Just done in France, zero problems. Get Smart America!!!”

Mr Trump’s complaints come as the Republican primary for Senate in the commonwealth remains too close to call. Mr Trump endorsed the former television host and physician, who faced criticism that he was not sufficiently conservative. Former hedge fund executive Dave McCormick trailed Dr Oz by 1,395 votes as of Wednesday morning.

But Mr McCormick had a significant advantage in mail-in ballots, 作为 38,607 voters cast their ballots by mail for him compared to 27,375 for Dr Oz.

Elections that are within 0.5 per cent must have an automatic recount and currently Mr McCormick trails Dr Oz by 0.11 per cent of the vote. Meanwhile conservative commentator Kathy Barnette, who enjoyed a late surge in the polls ahead of the contest, is behind Dr Oz by 6.5 per cent of the vote.

The winner of the primary will face Lieutenant Governor John Fetterman, who won the Democratic nomination against Representative Conor Lamb and state legislator Malcolm Kenyatta.

Republican Senator Pat Toomey, who voted to convict Mr Trump for his role in the January 6 riot at the Capitol, is retiring at the end of this term.
