November 3, 2020—Election Day is today and the Trump campaign is still making moves to suppress voters in North Carolina. The Lincoln Project is today releasing a video reminding state leaders that going along with Trump’s demands will have consequences.
The video, “You Will Be Caught,” reminds North Carolina Republican officials including Senator Thom Tillis, Representative George Holding, Representative Virginia Foxx, and more that their complicity with Trump’s unethical behavior will not be tolerated.
“Every North Carolina Republican official that has supported and enabled Donald Trump should be worried,” said Reed Galen, co-founder of The Lincoln Project. “They’re systematically trying to disenfranchise voters because they’re incapable of winning an election fair and square. Trying to sow fear and doubt in the electoral process, making voting more difficult, and originating disingenuous legal challenges will not help them win.”
All eyes will be on North Carolina as well as a handful of other swing states in which Republicans are taking similarly unethical measures. They won’t get away with such a naked and corrupt power grab.
