Republican senator’s comments come as he is considered among Trump’s top candidates for vice-president

The Republican Florida senator Marco Rubio said on Sunday he would not commit to accepting the 2024 presidential election results, insisting that “if it’s unfair” his party will “go to court and point out the fact that states are not following their own election laws”.

Rubio’s statements on Meet the Press come as he is considered among former president Donald Trump’s top candidates for vice-president. Trump has continuously said falsely that the 2020 election was stolen.

Those claims spurred the 6 January 2021 insurrection, during which participants stormed the Capitol building as lawmakers were in the midst of certifying the election results. Trump is facing a variety of charges related to alleged election meddling.

    I don’t think they’ll even need to. The Dems are tired and the repubs are amped up. Trump is probably going to win this election as fucked up as that is.

      You’re sorely mistaken if you think We The People are not AMPED to send these filthy trump traitors scurrying back to the prison cells they would be graced to inhabit alive.

        My family in law are a very intellectual thinking kind Jewish family but for some dumb fucking reason they are trump supporters. I’m voting out of fear but I don’t think there is enough of us.
