Larry Elder campaign spreads baseless claim that recall election ended in fraud before results are declared

Can you demand a precount?

The campaign for California gubernatorial candidate Larry Elder on Monday began propagating allegations of election fraud, one day before the recall election and before election results have even been released.

Elder’s campaign shared a form on his website that appeared to assume that Newsom held onto his seat, alleging that he did so through election fraud. The California recall election is set to begin on Tuesday Sept. 14, though mail-in voting has already begun and early voting already took place earlier in September.

“They say that in America, there are four boxes of liberty. The soapbox, the ballot box, the jury box, and the ammo box,” the form said. “When we vote we exercise our rights as Californians and as Americans to make our voices heard via the ballot box, having listened to others make theirs heard through the soapbox. We trust in our elected officials to safeguard that ballot box, such that its results will truly reflect our will as Californian’s.”

Update:

He’s not the only one claiming this from the GOP:

And there you have it. From now on, anytime a Democrat wins, they will say it is rigged. We are going to a dangerous place.
