Sen. McConnell: Election may be decided in courts
UPDATED 12:53 AM PT – Wednesday, November 4, 2020
According to Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), questionable vote counts in several key states are likely to delay the election results.
On Wednesday, the Senate majority leader said President Trump may have won the election, but it looks like both sides will send lawyers to try and claim the final victory.
This comes as alleged “ballot dumps” in Wisconsin and Michigan narrowed the President’s leads in those states overnight while vote counts continue.
Wow! It looks like Michigan has now found the ballots necessary to keep a wonderful young man, John James, out of the U.S. Senate. What a terrible thing is happening!

McConnell said this election may go up to the Supreme Court.
And what we’re going to see here in the next few days, both in the Senate races and in the presidential race, is each state will ultimately get to a final outcome. And you should not be shocked that both sides are going to have lawyers there, both in these close Senate races and in the presidential contest”
McConnell went on to say close elections are not unusual in this country and urged patience amid building anxiety across the U.S.
